Join the friends of this collection of shorts as they, in the company of friends, brave the challenges the day has put in front of them.

In this collection of shorts, friends explore new places and meet new faces. In one short, Pablo, who is on the autism spectrum, looks to make sense of his world one rainy day with the help of friends. In another short, when a tiny snail meets a humpback whale, the two travel together to far-off lands. Based on the beloved book, narrated by Diana Rigg. In the last short, a perplexed platypus thought a relaxing day was ahead of him. Until he accidentally gets shrunk super tiny, that is.

NO-NO SHRINKS (Short Film)

Synopsis: Poor No-No the platypus! He thought today was going to be a day like any other, with a good picnic and a long nap in his comfortable deckchair. But everything is turned upside down when he's mistakenly made super tiny—the size of an ant. With the help of a new friend, our platypus must go on an unexpected adventure.
