The cows, pigs, chickens and dogs on the farm play, work and socialise all day long, while the resident bat is in the barn getting some well-deserved shut-eye. Once the sun has gone down, it’s bat time… but who’s our nocturnal friend going to hang out with when everyone else is asleep? Happily, he soon discovers he’s not the only one who enjoys frolicking in the moonlight in this gorgeously animated tale.
