Oddball

Off the south coast of Australia, foxes have taken over an island sanctuary home to the world’s smallest penguins, damaging their population. But an eccentric chicken farmer and his precocious granddaughter hatch a plan to save the the penguins: they’ll train his mischievous sheepdog to guard them. Based on a true story, Oddball finds a wealth kid-friendly hijinks in real-life conservation issues, teaching that anyone – nine-year-old girls, misbehaving dogs – can have a huge impact in saving endangered animals.

 

Directed by Stuart McDonald. Produced by Richard Keddie, Sheila Hanahan Taylor and Steve Kearney.
