A dark and gritty psychological thriller meets bright and colourful cartoons in this in this underground cult hit.

Checkers is a strange individual. He lives in the sewer and goes out every night to fight crime because he believes is a superhero.

He has a tiny companion, a thumb-sized pink elephant named Thumbo who alerts him to crimes that are happening.
