Max, an urban rabbit boy, gets trapped in an old-fashioned Easter rabbit school that is surrounded by a clever fox family scheming to take over Easter. With the help of cute rabbit girl Emmy and training lessons from mysterious Madame Hermione, Max not only learns the secret magic of Easter bunnies, but also that home is where your heart is – and where you’ll never hop alone. Will this be enough to save Easter and his new friends?
