SYNOPSIS

A strange looking duckling hatched out in the yard from an unusual egg. Unlike other ducklings. All the poultry in the yard thought it was ugly. The duckling is made of plasticine duckling in our film, while all other poultry: geese, ducks, turkeys are made in feather. All the Ugly Duckling’s trials are acted out under the accompaniment of music from Tchaikovsky’s “Swan’s Lake”. There will be a happy ending and the Ugly Duckling will turn into a beautiful swan and soar over the envious “ordinary” birds in the poultry yard which could not fly. A beautiful swan is hidden in every child even if it does not look like other children. One just has to believe and hope. That is the message of the film.
