This colour contemporary dance and movement film, based on the theme of 'Animals of Land and Sea', tells the story of a group of wild animals attending a party together, with spinning star fish, lions and Elephants. A group of penguins decide to join in and make friends with the other animals. The movement came from stories written by the dancers, accompanied by a soundtrack that represented the sounds of animal life in the sea, the jungle and the city.
