Based on a book by the popular children's author Ole Lund Kirkegaard, this is a whimsical tale of Ivan (Alex Svanbjerg), a little boy who fails at athletics and lags in his reading skills, occasioning jeers and abuse from his classmates -- they call him the "rubber Tarzan" when he cannot lift weights. (His father extols Tarzan to his young son as a symbol of manliness.)
