Having your birthday on February 29 is terribly stupid. It’s even worse when you get a duck egg for a birthday present. Ten-year-old Cathy and her best friend Margaux hatch the egg and see how the duckling crawls out of the egg. They really want to take care of the little duckling, but her parents don’t want an animal in their house. The duckling is quite likely to end up as canned cat food. Cathy and Margaux set out on an adventurous journey to rescue it. *Catalan première
