A heartwarming tale based on a true story. Owen, a baby hippo orphaned by the 2004 tsunami, arrives at a Kenyan nature preserve where relief workers hope to match him with a new mother. But Owen chooses his own RmotherS--a 130-year-old male tortoise named Mzee, who comforts Owen like no one else can. Full color.
