Animation. Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale about an ugly duckling who turns into a beautiful swan is the subject of this 3D animated comedy. The tale is updated in unorthodox fashion as Ratso, a success-starved rodent impresario tries to persuade everyone that he is the duckling's dad. Ratso and the world's ugliest duckling set off on a perilous journey towards their big breakthrough, but dangerous foes, teenage problems and unexpected paternal feelings lie ahead.
