He goes to play inside the cave unaware of the incoming tide due to the storm, he was trapped along with a bird. He didn’t know what to do, and amid the storm, he hopped along the rocks, seeing a sailboat coming toward him.
Noi was surprised to see his grandma in the sailboat and was happy that she came to rescue him. While going back, he saw some more birds lying in the rock, He collected all the birds and took them home. They both helped the birds to dry and kept them inside until the storm passed by.
Once the storm got over, all the birds left except the Noi’s bird, which he first rescued in the storm. Noi was so happy with his grandma and the rest of the summer they both spent exploring the whole island and this was his best summer.
