When Kooshkin the Rooster decides to retire his signature cock-a-doodle-doo, the residents of Gargor Lake anticipate his son Joojoo to take over. But Joojoo’s voice isn’t powerful enough to get the town out of bed, so the lake's amphibious residents start sleeping in. On the other end of town, a curious young frog named Sabzak has a plan: he wants to fix the town's abandoned clocktower. If he can find a way to get it running, there won’t be any need for a cock-a-doodle-doo.
But Sabzak doesn’t know anything about clocks until he encounters a mysterious crow with magic pumpkin seeds. The magic seeds give Sabzak the ability to get the grandfather clock working again--or so he thinks. Joojoo catches wind of Sabzak’s plans, however, and joins forces with the town’s nefarious sheriff to foil them. An animated feature film, The Cushion is the story of a courageous frog who learns he needs only to believe in himself to outwit his foes and restore his town to its former glory.
