Beep

In Mort’s village, everything has its place, every day is the same and everyone likes it that way. Until one morning, crash, boom, bang… down comes Beep!

What is this annoying interruption to Mort’s breakfast molly melon, who is this noisy robot girl, and how will she find her home?

With Windmill’s trademark design, gentle storytelling, music and puppetry, Beep tells the slightly sideways tale about unexpected friendship, finding where you fit and learning to mix it up a little.
