Checkered Ninja

Checkered Ninja

“Wonderfully funny, and meaningful for children and adults alike.” — Ekko Magazine

For his birthday Alex receives a ninja doll made from checkered cloth. Possessed by an ancient spirit, the doll turns out to be alive, and the bold Checkered Ninja helps Alex resolve his problems at school and at home. But the Checkered Ninja is on a mission of revenge, and Alex, who has sworn to help him, is torn as a bitter match of willpower between the two ensues.
A box office smash in its native Denmark, Checkered Ninja offers a meaningful and exciting adventure across cultures.
