In a garden world full of creatures, the grumpy old tomcat is the least popular of the bunch. The flirty swallow is the only one brave enough to approach the aloof feline with some unsavory truths. Things gets personal between the swallow and the tomcat and out of conflict, love is born. Will their love survive the vicious judgments of the polite garden society? In this new adaptation of the beloved Brazilian children's novel, a swallow and a tomcat show us how hate is a reactionary act while love is a radical one. Suitable for ages 6 and up.
