What's so great about singing, anyway?
This computer-animated movie is set amongst the current cinematic fave creatures, the Emperor penguins of the antarctic. Our hero is born with a remarkable dancing talent, but is unable to sing. This is a problem since these penguins rely on singing to attract a mate. Rejected by his own kind, and blamed for the lack of fish, our little hero wanders off on his own to find out where the fish are. He meets new friends, and learns some things about the effects humans are having on our world, before returning triumphantly to try and attract a wife.
