Turuleca is a hen unable to lay eggs as the rest of the chicken. Property of the cheater hen breeder Sr. Cocoricó, he arrives to the little town of Villa Armonía to trade, where he deceives the nice aging woman Isabel to buy Turuleca in order to get rid her. Isabel, a retired music teacher, decides to play songs hoping that the music helps Turuleca to lay eggs, just to discover that Turuleca is able to understand her new owner. Teaching her human language as well as a lot of songs to sing, Turuleca lives in the farm with Isabel and her other animals as cow Melodía, sheep Ritmo and hog Compás. But this happiness ends abruptly when one day Isabel falls to the ground and she's taken to a hospital with amnesia. Trying to meet Isabel again Turuleca leaves the farm to follow the ambulance, but she loses it by the way and Turuleca arrives at Circus Daedalus, where its owner Antonio has a great debt with the ruthless businessman Armando Tramas, a former contortionist expelled from the circus ...

User Reviews

1 January 2020 | by haawierSee all my reviews

When you go to watch a film with your little ones and they can't keep their eyes off the screen, and they sing and dance throughout the whole show you must give it a 10! The plot is simple and unpretentious which makes it easy for the kids to follow. The movie is inspired by a popular Spanish children's song but global audiences can relate to the characters and core messages of the film.
