Based on the famous character from a song that has transcended generations in the Latin World,’Turu, The Wacky Hen’ tells the story of a very unusual hen, trying to find her place in the world. Ridiculed by the rest of the henhouse because of her peculiar appearance and the fact that she is unable to lay eggs, Turu just doesn’t seem to fit in. But one day, her life takes a harmonious turn when Isabel, a retired music teacher, takes Turuleca to live on her farm. There, the pair discovers Turuleca true talents—she talks, she sings, and she even dances!
After an unfortunate accident where Isabel loses her memory, Turuleca embarks on an adventure full of both high and low notes. From a circus full of new friends to the exceedingly greedy Armando Tramas who is determined to capture and exploit the talented Turuleca. A veritable love song to differences, this animated family adventure will have you tapping and singing along with its infectious lineup of catchy musical numbers.
