Checkered Ninja 2

86 min.DK/FeatureChildren's films, Animation

The cynical toy giant Phillip Eppermint is about to evade a prison sentence in Thailand and therefore innocent child factory workers are in danger. The hunt for revenge and justice resumes with 13-year-old Alex and his ninja doll. The two are flanked by Sirena, Alex’s mom, and Alex’s stepfather, John, who goes all-in on his latest invention: a digestive app. Alex’s eternally hungry and irritating stepbrother Sean is also there – and of course not to forget Alex’s (indispensable) Uncle Stewart who always knows how to spread a "good" mood in the family.
