When a lonely boy discovers what appears to be a strange and large egg on the banks of the loch, he brings it home to investigate further. Nothing could possibly prepare the young boy for what lies within that odd egg. A little creature emerges and while growing at a rate of ten times a day and eating everything in sight the rapidly growing new pet can’t seem to keep out of trouble. Growing larger so quickly, and finding mischief around every turn begins to make keeping his new friend a secret more and more difficult for the boy as time passes. Set in 1940’s Scotland during the war, this wonderfully told family movie is a must see for all.
