An unlikely friendship… one extraordinary adventure! Bill Travers (Duel at Diablo, Gorgo) and Virginia McKenna (A Town Like Alice), the husband-and-wife team who starred alongside Elsa the Lion in Born Free, now share the screen with Mij, a delightfully mischievous otter who’ll enchant viewers of all ages in this bright, wholesome, captivating and endearing film. Middle-aged bachelor Graham Merrill (Travers) has a nice, quiet life in London, but his fun-loving new roommate Mij is about to change everything. Curious and playful, this otter has better things to do than sit around a stuffy apartment, so Graham decides to move to the coast of Scotland where Mij can frolic to his heart’s content. Once there, they meet Mary (McKenna), and the unlikely trio begin an incredible journey of friendship and discovery that will transform their lives forever. Directed by Jack Couffer (Living Free).
