Ella and her mother are going from New Zealand to Antarctica, in order to drop off three lost emperor penguins by Finn, a talking boat. Jett agrees to go along with them. Ella keeps the penguins in check by using a whistle. Ella sees Antarctica in her sights, but a ginormous waterspout is blocking their way. Jett tries to steer the boat away from the waterspout, but the weather phenomenon is too strong for him. How are they going to get to Antarctica and drop safely the penguins there in one piece?
