82 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films, Animation

When Philip Eppercorn manages to evade prison in Thailand, the Checkered Ninja comes to life again and finds Alex. First in the shape of a hedgehog, but then Alex’ mom Sirene sews him a new "organic" body (that he does not like at all), and now they must go to Thailand to nail Eppercorn – and at the same time prevent him from killing the final witnesses to his crime, the child workers of his factory.
