Underwater life seems idyllic for everyone except for one little creature named Snap. He's no good at catching fish and everyone makes fun of him – until one day he meets a cool frog who shows him a different way to solve his problem and beat the bullies. Winner of 12 international awards, this lovely CG-animated short teaches us that friends come in all shapes and sizes.
