  • “Bright, bouncy and busy from start to finish... a likeable, broadly amusing and engaging adventure that also doubles as an ode to loyalty and ingenuity.” — Screen Daily

    Life passes by peacefully in Sunnytown until one day when Mitcho and Sebastian find a bottle washed up by the harbour. Inside it is a message from the missing Mayor of Sunnytown, who vanished without a trace, and a seed that grows into a giant pear overnight. The pear turns into a sailboat, and soon the anxious Sebastian and hydrophobic Mitcho find themselves in the middle of the ocean with a mad professor. The trio embarks on a great journey to save the Mayor and bring him home.

    This fast-paced, magical animation is based on the picture book by Jakob Martin Strid.
