Wheezy isn't like the other ducks - he can't even quack! When his sister is too embarrassed to be seen with him, Wheezy decides to run away. After narrowly escaping the hungry cat, Spike, Wheezy meets a ballerina cow, and a rock and roll rat, who teach him to celebrate his differences. But when Wheezy discovers that Spike is planning to eat his family, he realizes he must return home. Will Wheezy and his eccentric new friends be able to make it back before dinner time?
