When his father goes away, Jacob is sent to stay with his cousin Mimmi in a suburb of Riga. Mimmi wants to disrupt plans to build in the local park, a development that will cause the loss of trees and adversely affect the community. She recruits Jacob to assist her. On encountering a group of local dogs, Jacob is surprised when they speak to him and he decides to enlist them in battling the local construction works. But things don’t quite go as planned. This lovely, unconventional Latvian animation has heaps of charm and offers an inspiring look at how we can work together, particularly to protect the environment.
