Set in the vivid fall season, the movie is a heartwarming, hilarious tale filled with stunning wildlife footage and original music (including a groundhog, chipmunk and woodpecker’s ode to fall). Based on the book First Snow in the Woods, by Carl Sams II and Jean Stoick. In a pumpkin patch surrounded by the reds and golds of fall, a worried scarecrow watches the animals prepare for winter.
