Here’s some of what’s in store…
Cosmonaut buddies compete for a chance to rocket into space, overcoming impossible odds to reach their childhood dream. A 5000-year-old mammoth is defrosted into an unrecognizable future controlled by humanoid elephants. A magical pink pony plays with happy monkeys, nibbles macaroons, chills with the duke of Merryville, and sets fire to a few buildings. A mysterious vinyl record grants a young woman the dangerous power to travel between distant moments in her own life. An orphan keeps his hometown safe from the dark cloud of pollution beyond his dam, despite school bullies and a thankless public… But when a new student joins his class, hope and despair build to a dramatic crisis that could change everything.
