"What do you know about dung-beetles? They are the beetles that push along a ball made from the poo of other animals. But one dung-ball isn’t enough for Hugo the dung-beetle – he wants as many as possible! He stores them all around the forest and doesn’t talk to anyone. But what happens when all his treasures dissolve in a few seconds right before his eyes? Hugo the dung-beetle is a story about greed, the strength of friendship and what actually makes us happy, even when everything else is crap!"
