Half a zebra, a whole lot of adventure!

This SA-made animated treat is about a half-striped zebra who is blamed for the lack of rain by the rest of his superstitious herd. Desperate to clear his name, he embarks on a daring quest to earn his stripes. In his search for the legendary waterhole in which the first zebras got their stripes, he meets a quirky range of characters, and teams up with an unlikely duo: an overprotective wildebeest, and a self-obsessed, flamboyant ostrich. But before he can reunite with his herd, he will have to come face to face with a sadistic leopard who controls the waterholes and terrorizes all the animals in the Great Karoo. This film is releasing in both English and Afrikaans in both 2D and 3D, this is the 2D English version.
