Synopsis

Cast out by others for his inability to swim, a penguin is left alone to figure out what he can use to stay afloat as the tide heightens. After his small boat breaks and a plank he used as a surf board goes missing, he finds an abandoned plane that could solve his problems. With an anti-bullying message, this short animation is a story about believing in yourself and kindness.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
