2017 Academy Award Nominee—Best Animated Film! “On the one hand, the cartoon is never afraid to be cute, but more importantly, it’s committed to being real”—Variety. After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is befriended by a police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this at times strange and hostile environment. But with Raymond’s help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust and love, as he searches for a new family of his own. “An emotional resonance and a non-saccharine uplift that is mostly rare in today’s animation world”—The Playlist.
