Tell the truth. It sounds easy, doesn't it? But what about when you are under great pressure not to? That is the situation Miro, a young chipmunk, finds himself in at work as a house painter. Will Miro find the strength to say what is true in the midst of the great, living forest? You'll have to listen and find out.
