Guyi-Guyi is a crocodile born into a family of ducks by accident. He lives happily with them until one day he meets a crocodile. When he finds out that crocodiles eat ducks, Guyi-Guyi has to decide what his true nature is.

Guyi-Guyi is a free adaptation of the story of "Ugly Duckling", staged in an interesting and fun way. The theme of the search for identity is a global today. The contrast between the characters helps to represent the fear of difference and prejudice about those who behave differently than expected.
