Logline

Mascha Halberstad’s latest animated caper delights us with lovable characters and a great deal of humor.

In a large clearing, the megalomaniacal beaver finally completes his masterpiece: a gigantic castle. With the help of his lackeys, two mischievous rats, he has dammed up the river. Within a very short span of time, a huge lake forms, flooding the surrounding forest. Threatened by the masses of water, Fox and Hare have no choice but to find out who’s behind this. They must not only save their home, but also find their friend Owl, who has disappeared without a trace.

Recommended for ages 5 and up.
