Ugly Duckling is an attempt at promoting tolerance in the society, world famous animator and director Garri Bardin stated.
As he told October 14 news conference in Yerevan, “Ugly Duckling is a story about the life of a little outcast among ordinary people.”

Dwelling on his further plans, the director spoke of his work on a short film Rondo, however, omitting the details.
