Colin the Crab is a hard worker, who loves spending the spare time with his many friends. He has a charming home, but lately, it has started to feel a bit empty and lonely. Why is that? Is it time for Colin to find a spouse? Colin is confused, and even his friends don’t know how to advise him. Mr. Finley the Frog, the director of the river museum, calls Colin for help when an accident befalls the exhibition. Colin makes an unexpected and quite a unique discovery from between the shells: a girl crab, who has the most beautiful eyes in the world.
