Some farms are up in the hills ... or down long, winding lanes ... but Silver Street Farm is different - it's right in the middle of a town!
After a baby-filled spring, Silver Street Farm is bursting at the seams! The lambs refuse to stay in their pen, the pigs are restless and the chickens have set up home in the office. There's not enough space for all the new animals, but Meera, Karl and Gemma can't bear to say goodbye to even a single guinea-pig. If only there was some way for them to buy the deserted scrapyard next door from the elusive Mike Steely... When a chance encounter with famous director, Franco Lorenzo, leads to the children and animals getting involved in a film, it is the perfect opportunity to raise some much needed money and solve their overcrowding problem. It's also the moment when little Squirt's dreams of being an actor come true - and who should turn out to be Franco Lorenzo's half brother? Mike Steely!
