There’s no telling what the ‘Finns’ are capable of. You’ll just have to watch this family animated film to find out what they get up to during these school holidays. It’s set in a world where tiny little creatures secretly inhabit the human world and care for homes.

It features cute characters and an interesting plot with strong messages and the importance of heeding values for one and all. It has to be seen to be believed.

Every household has a ‘Finn’, a fluffy, furry, invisible creature responsible for making sure that everything runs well, that people get where they need to be and that the house is truly a home. Most Finns take pride in looking after their humans, but Finnick (voice of Billy Bob Thompson) is not like most Finns. Finnick has decided that he is tired of the noise and bother of the human world and he does everything he can to make sure that no one stays in his house.
To the locals, his house is known to be haunted but logical, 13-year-old, Christine (voice of Nathalie Ferare), who has just moved in with her parents, believes there must be a reasonable explanation and sets out to discover what it is. Thanks to her ingenuity, Christine soon encounters a world she never expected to find.

When a series of terrible events begin to take place, Christine and Finnick have to work together to solve the mystery and save their city.

It is a family film for all but with parental guidance, the youngest of viewers, aged five-to-seven, will understand that huge problems can be solved by working together; allies can be found in the most unlikely of places; and there is often more than meets the eye to any given situation.

Parents can also take the opportunity to underline values like courage, cooperation, being helpful, determination and friendship.
