Es el cumpleaños de Otto y quiere celebrarlo con todos sus amigos. Les envía invitaciones prometiendo un gran abrazo cuando lleguen a la fiesta. Luego comienza a trabajar para preparar todo: comida, bebidas y música. ¡Será una gran fiesta! Pero, ¿cómo se sienten sus amigos sobre ese "gran abrazo" que les prometió? Uno por uno, todos comienzan a compartir su preocupación y sus miedos. Apoyándose el uno en el otro, descubren que confiar en los amigos es muy positivo, incluso en las profundidades del océano.

It is Otto’s birthday and he wants to celebrate it with all his friends. He sends out the invitations, promising a big hug when they come over. Then he starts working on getting everything ready: food, drinks, and music. It is going to be a great party! But how do his friends feel about his promised “big hug”? One by one they all start sharing their thoughts and fears. Leaning on each other, they discover that trusting friends goes a long way, even in the deep ocean!
