Theme:Although the night is a time of rest for many animals, it is also a vital, active time for other animals–and some people.

This is the charming story of a baby bat who falls head first into a bird’s nest and is raised in a most peculiar way until she is reunited with her mother.

LeVar discovers a mysterious and fascinating world of nocturnal animals. Viewers see bats in their natural habitats and visit with a bat expert. At the New York University Sleep Center, viewers learn about the world of slumber and dreams, and follow a young girl as she takes part in a sleep study.
