Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice this, despite his mother’s protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl embarks on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a hungry cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a flock of unique characters and learns that being different is not a bad thing.
