A magical tale of friendship and loneliness, which tells the story of a little boy who one day finds a penguin on his doorstep. Although at first he is unsure what to do, the boy becomes determined to help the penguin find his way back home... Even if that means rowing all the way to the South Pole!

The scene where the boy and the penguin are drifting through the ocean in a small boat and come across a large number of floating rubber ducks is a reference to a real event. In January 1992 a shipping container containing 29,000 rubber bath toys including yellow ducks fell from the cargo ship 'Ever Laurel' in a storm. The container subsequently burst open releasing the toys into the ocean. This event proved to be an unexpected windfall for science as oceanographers were able to track ocean currents in a way never before possible. See more
