GIFFONI EXPERIENCE 2015 - 17.26 July

Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2015

Instead of helping his friends with the harvest, little Raven races his soapbox car through the forest and accidentally destroys the stocks the animals need to survive in the winter. To refill the storage before his friends realize something happened, Raven sets out to win a soapbox car race and earn the prize of one hundred golden coins. Competition is strong: among opponents there is Rinaldo, a Peruvian parakeet who is coached by his ambitious father Emilio who is a former world-champion himself. The race through the forest is full of twists and surprises, and in the end Raven has gained something money can’t buy: he understands the value of teamwork, true friendship and responsibility.
