In Competition

Donald is not like any other kid: his fingers are made of chocolate bars! Treated as an outcast because of this unsual feature, when he meets the love of his life, he gets a chance to turn what makes him different into his greatest asset. Winner of several awards, this wonderful fairy tale features brilliantly conceived art direction, a clever use of rhyme and the invention of a truly original character, revealing a new talent to watch.
