Every November, co-Directors Alex and Kaitlyn, eat Thanksgiving dinner at Alex’s Aunt and Uncle’s. And every November, they marvel at the fact that the family’s 4-inch-long pet turtle, Snowy, is still alive. This short documentary is both an investigation into animal happiness and an intervention to improve one turtle’s life.
