Summary The heartwarming true tale of the friendship between and a man and the penguin he saved. João finds a penguin, soaked in oil, on the shore. Barely moving on the sand, too tired to swim, too weak to stand ... João must save this little guy. Without his help, he'll surely die. João takes the penguin home. He cleans him, feeds him and nurses him back to health - and the pair develop an unlikely bond. When the penguin is fully recovered, João knows it's time to return him to the wild where he belongs. But the penguin has other ideas ... When the heart is open, friendship can happen anywhere.
