The Middle Island off the coast of Australia is home to hundreds of little penguins. Unfortunately, foxes have found the island and are drastically reducing the number of penguins. As the population shrinks, the Island stands to lose its penguin sanctuary status and is
set to become a whale watching spot for tourists. In the hopes of saving their seaside town, Swampy, an eccentric chicken farmer, teams up with his granddaughter to train their mischievous dog, Oddball, to protect the penguins.
