A lonely toy hippo finds himself stuffed inside a toy crane game where he meets the buff-colored owl, a pig, and a goat who help him overcome his broken spirit, teach him about true friendship, how to embrace opportunities as they come, and not to fear life on the outside of the toy crane game.
However, when he is captured as a prize he's not sure he wants to leave his friends behind, not until he sees something in the face of a little girl that gives him hope for a wonderful life ahead.
The toy hippos’ life is about to change in ways he only dreamed about, but can he find the strength to "let go" of the life he knows and leave behind his only friends?
Can this once rejected, reclaimed, teased and bullied, lonely hippo trust his friends, believe that his biggest adventures in life will begin when he leaves the comforts of his toy crane game home? Can his friends help him understand that to claim your own dreams, sometimes, you have to fall?
