Uku is a male volcano who spends his time alone in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, singing a sweet love song hoping that out there somewhere is another ready to answer his call. As the years pass, Uku starts to lose his form and extinction beckons – but just as all hope seems lost, a female volcano from under the sea responds to his lyrics.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
