This animated film has a storyline that evokes images of struggles, hope, passion, and endurance. It is based on a Koala who is from a business family.

The mere act of inheriting the theater does not make the Koala so lucky as he has to contend with the arduous task of keeping the theater business alive and profitable.
So what does the Koala do? Does he borrow money? Does he hire artists? Of course, he has money and a brilliant mind, so he decides to keep the theater running by staging a singing competition.
