Little Rudolf is the story of a young reindeer who discovers he is discovers he is different from everyone else. Despite the best of intentions, his parents only manage to complicate the problems their youngster has to face.

Rudolf sets off by himself into the unknown. With humour, compassion and a touch of magic, we follow him and his family to the realisation that the best way to deal with difference is not only to acknowledge it, but also to embrace and celebrate each individual as someone with a unique gift for the world.

For children aged 4 – 7 years.

Running time approx 35 minutes.
