Synopsis

Ever since the moment Trudy uttered her very first word, her talking has got her into trouble. Her inability to lie – or even to keep quiet – becomes an even bigger problem when she starts school, until one day she realises that her big mouth is what makes her special. A charming parable whose wonderfully simple drawings and cadenced voiceover are the perfect match for Mike O’Neill’s acoustic score.
