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.
