Kids, you’ve been lied to. Don’t believe the myth that a human’s biggest enemy is another human. Don’t believe that a human is a wolf to another human. The greatest enemy is dumbness. The root of evil is stupidity.

The fairy tale “Quick Stoat”, written and directed by Tero Jartti, is a story about a messed up kingdom. The stubborn king is looking for a blue-blooded, handsome and wealthy husband for his daughter who has reached marital age. The princess cannot tell outer and inner beauty apart and attracts strange sleazy fellows whose plans are more than a little fishy. The kingdom along with the princess is almost handed over to crooks. Luckily Quick Stoat, superhero and detective famous all over the kingdom, is ready for action. When something is rotten in the kingdom he can smell it with his sensitive nose. The adventurous Quick Stoat starts a difficult fight against dumbness. On his path he teams up with the mastermind Ant and together they discover the kingdom’s creepiest and scariest secret – where is the king’s son, the princess’s brother who disappeared years ago?

The production is appropriate for kids 5 years old and up.
