Abominable


Synopsis

Yi is a teenager from Shanghai whose mother and grandma are overprotective of her in the absence of her father, while she yearns for adventure. And so after discovering a Yeti, long believed to be a legend, on her rooftop, she resolves to help reunite him with his family at the highest point on Earth. Alongside her mischievous friends Jin and Peng, they embark on an epic quest to take the newly-named Everest back home but must stay one step ahead of a wealthy collector who is intent on keeping the Yeti for himself. 'Abominable' is a heartwarming animation which explores topics such as grief, friendship and the power of music.
