Luxembourg Premiere

Best friends Finny and Leah find themselves ejected from Noah’s Ark again.

When best friends Finny the Nestrian and Leah the Grymp are finally reunited with their parents on board the Ark, they quickly realise that there is no sign of the high waters retreating just yet. Life at sea is not easy, food is bland and stocks are running low. An uneasy, fragile peace between carnivores and herbivores, could break down at any second. Leah convinces a reluctant Finny to agree to a midnight raid of the food stores, which inadvertently leads to them being washed overboard – again! – along with the last of the food supplies. The castaways are marooned on a remote island, populated by oddly familiar creatures. Finny must rescue his friends, reunite with his family and save the colony on the island from total destruction.
