JACOB, MIMMI AND THE TALKING DOGS
O.V in English subtitled in Spanish
Jacob has spent the summer in the city, specifically at his uncle’s Eagle, an ex-pirate, and his determined cousin Mimmi home. But summer boredom turns into a secret mission when Mimmi learns that they plan to build a skyscraper in the only park of her neighbourhood. The two of them set off with a gang of talking dogs, Jacob's friends: an unusual squadron fighting against real estate speculation.
