The flm is the tale of a greedy rat who robs animals along the highway of their food: clover from a rabbit, nuts from a squirrel, a leaf from some ants — he even steals his own horse’s hay! But what the rat really craves is cakes and sugary treats, and it’s his sweet tooth that finally leads him into a sticky situation.

Based on the children’s book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.
