A seemingly plain clay pot magically transports Cucha, a selfish and lonely girl, from her hometown of Zapoteco, Mexico, to a mysterious jungle filled with eccentric characters. Using her knowledge of both English and Spanish, Cucha encounters Parrot Rivera, a jungle muralist who paints the future; Señor Chapulin, a soccer star with the heart of the present; and Burro Burrito, a farmer who plows through the past. Meanwhile, the evil Monkey King and his silly sidekick know the clay pot is really a magical piñata and scheme to steal it from Cucha. Through Cucha’s journey, she discovers the magic of the mundane, the roots of cultural pride, and the power of sharing.
