Synopsis

Jasper is a penguin who has spent his whole life in the same colony at the South Pole. What he really wants is to spread his flippers and explore the world. When he asks his father about the mysteries of adult life that await him, he is disappointed to hear the answer: that there is not much to discover. Still, he is eager to prove his theory that there are other lands beyond the frozen desert where he lives. And he thinks he has found proof when he receives a visit from a kakapo parrot who enlists his aid in a dangerous mission. With his brother Junior and a nine-year-old human called Emma, he will set out on an adventure that will lead him to distant lands in search of the parrot’s eggs, which have fallen into the hands of the evil Dr. Block.
