This is a story about an unexpected and unusual life-changing friendship that brings about laughter and melts your heart. If you thought it was impossible that man and penguin could be best friends, you were wrong. Just these two somewhat unmatchable creatures will become inseparable by chance. That is proof that friendship knows no boundaries, shapes or forms, and that it breaks down prejudices and builds bridges between all living creatures. The puppet show “Dindim” was created based on a real event from Rio de Janeiro, where an older man becomes family to oneMagellanic penguin, and that incredible story is presented through the magic of puppet theater.
