Synopsis

A whole surreal world surrounds this little yellow duck which has wandered, drifted across and sailed the oceans for decades. Sought after and adored, this keen observer of human behavior, object of curiosity, choice quest item, bearer of memories and scientific knowledge, enjoys participating in river races along with 5,000 of its fellow rubber ducks and basking in the sun on beautiful beaches. From the shores of the English Channel with an archaeologist, to the Dead Sea in Palestine, from a giant Japanese version of itself to the depths of a cavern in Québec, this little yellow rubber duck has gone on quite the epic journey! Stray Ducks explores climate change, measures the affection humans have for objects while also examining the harmful effects of marine plastic pollution.
