More About the Film

A group of forest animals set out on the adventure of learning to write. A squirrel, a tiger, a hedgehog and an elephant will write many wrong letters and scrambled words, and in the end, learn the importance of togetherness, perseverance and knowledge. Along the way, they will, of course, make some new friends who will teach them a few more secrets the alphabet has to offer.
