One duckling stands out from all the rest. Teased for his different appearance and feeling unwanted, the duckling runs away and sets off on a long and lonely journey to discover acceptance and how special he really is. A retelling of a beloved children's fable, this story reflects African contexts while maintaining the universal appeal of the original.
