A distinct, visually thrilling, and daring animation.
Cuca's cozy rural life is shattered when his father leaves for the city, prompting him to embark on a quest to reunite his family.
The young boy's journey unfolds like a tapestry, the animation taking on greater complexity as his small world expands.
The story depicts a clash between village and city, hand crafted and mechanised, rich and poor - and throughout the tumult, the heart and soul of the people beats on as a song.
Whether by accident, fate, or on the heels of an adventure, characters in this season’s Children's Film Club films will cross the divide that separates them from the wild unknown.
Jump on board as we explore hidden worlds (and hidden gardens), and travel from lush jungle to crowded city.
Join us while we learn about new cultures and ideas, and stumble out of the fairy tale and into the grime and glory of reality.
