In this adaptation of a Brazilian folk-talk, Gato leads us through his world. Gato’s owner, Nando, lives on a farm with his sick father. After Nando’s father passes away, Nando must care for the farm. However, Nando sells the farm to buy his mother’s old violin. Without a home, Nando leads us on an adventure through the farmland, a scary forest, and ending a kingdom of giants making music with the violin and leading a parade of animals along the way.
