A nightingale sings so sweetly for the emperor of China that it becomes the darling of the court. But when the emperor receives a mechanical nightingale that can sing one tune again and again, he judges the clockwork bird better than the original--realizing too late what a real treasure he once had. Music by Academy Award-winning composer Mark Isham. Full color.
