The stellar cast of characters includes:
- Robin, voiced by Bronte Carmichael, is adopted by a family of mice when her egg falls from the nest, and raised as one of their own. Not quite a bird and not quite a mouse, but full of determination. Robin sets out on an adventure to prove herself and just maybe, get a sandwich.
- Adeel Akhtar voices Dad Mouse, a caring but cautious soul who is single-handedly raising a family of five children (one of them happens to be an adopted bird).
- Magpie, an obsessive collector of shiny ‘stuff’ is voiced by Richard E Grant. Magpie takes Robin under his ‘wing’, on a journey of self-discovery. Underneath his many ruffled feathers he really is a good egg.
- Gillian Anderson voices Cat, the villain of our story who just so happens to know a place where everything is welcome, her tummy!
The short film is created and directed by Dan Ojari (Slow Derek) and Mikey Please (BAFTA® winner for The Eagleman Stag).
