Synopsis

Life is an adventure, not a race. In this slightly delayed coming-of-age story, an adorable tadpole is seemingly left behind when all his brothers and sisters metamorphosize into frogs. At first, a little worried about his predicament, he soon begins to realise that there is still much to discover in his pond. By embracing his unique path, he eventually develops into a stronger and more resilient frog because of it.
