In this heartwarming family film, young African elephants Zef and Tutu while away their days with playful mischief. But when their mother is shot by the Badness, Zef and Tutu must find a new family herd and a new place to call home. Joined by orphans Chump (a chimp), Stretch (a giraffe) and Cub (a lion), the brothers face unknown challenges -- and the Badness -- to find the families that Tutu believes await them all at the end of a rainbow.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that in this live-action animal adventure Tutu and Zef lose their mother to poachers. The event is described by Zef to his brother Tutu as a rainbow taking their mom to the sky -- a metaphor that may confuse young kids.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Guns are fired in the distance, and animals are killed -- though it's not shown. An elephant mom is taken by poachers (heard, not seen), and mentions of other animals' mothers taken by poachers as well. Young animals get lost.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Even though Tutu is voiced by a female (Emily Hunt), it's supposed to be a boy. Males dominate the story and are the only ones to make decisions. But the friends do work together to free Zef and find the end of the rainbow.
