The two go there anyway, where the Vulture and his minions attack them and try to kill them, only for Soar's father to fight off the evil vultures and saving the two. Later, Soar's father and the Vulture fight each other again, this time at the edge of the volcano's crater when the Vulture attacks the father and pushes him into the lava below. Soar flies into the volcano to try and save her father from doom , only for a cellphone to start ringing offscreen (the phone's ringtone is the Nokia "Dee-dee-loot-doot-Dee-dee-loot-doot-Doo-doo-doo-doot-DEE" ringtone, due to the short being sponsored by Nokia), causing her to wonder what just happened, and as a result she is unable to save her father and the two collide with each other causing them both to fall into the volcano and are seemingly killed. The short ends with Soar having survived the volcano, but with her feathers burned off slamming a celllphone shut.
