In the freezing cold of the Antarctic, Philip the penguin cub is snuggled cosily in the warmth of the skin-flap on his father’s belly. He is dreaming of exciting adventures when he is harshly brought back to reality by the unmistakable cry of Chris the albatross. In spite of a worldwide agreement that the Antarctic region should be protected, a group of people have arrived in search of oil. The whole penguin colony – and the entire polar world, for that matter – is in danger. Philip knows only one thing can save them now: organising a revolt.
