Tales of the Riverbank tells the story of three furry friends - Hammy Hamster, Roderick Rat and GP the Guinea Pig - who, having been swept down-river in a huge storm, embark on an epic voyage in search of their lost homes.
Their expedition, full of comic incident and drama becomes even more precarious when they discover that the whole riverbank is threatened by a Waffle Marmalade and Doughnut (WMD) factory owned by the evil Fat Cats that's polluting the countryside with increasingly dangerous emissions...the Big Dirt!
Along their journey to save the riverbank our little heroes encounter a colourful cast of characters including an imposing matron of a rabbit, Miss Much; her clairvoyant hamster friend Betty; an operatically Italian pig Al Fresco with a frisky flea circus and a whole host of amusing animals that help them along their way.
Join all these comical characters in an exciting and heart-warming film for all the family.
