Vividly-rendered animation relays this story of barely woman’s last summer season alongside along with her father.

Otter. Dolphin. Manatee. Even with an ocean of buddies, a polar bear’s gotta bear some zzz’s sometimes.

The fast debuted in 2021 and was throughout the official alternative for a variety of film festivals worldwide equal to Rhode Island International Film Festival, Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, and Los Angeles International Children’s Film Festival.
