“Every time a new person comes into our lives, we start off on a new adventure…you must keep your heart open, ready to love and to be loved.”
An exquisitely fashioned toy china rabbit, Edward Tulane, experiences deep love and loss on a tumultuous 20 year journey. Edward, a self-important toy companion to a young girl, obsesses over his vast array of lovely outfits rather than forge new relationships. When unexpected forces come into play he discovers what truly matters; to love and to be loved.
