Marcel, a small antrhopomorphic shell, and his grandma sit on a laptop surrounded by popcorn.

Join the world's cutest anthropomorphic shell (voiced by Jenny Slate) on a quest to reunite with his family, in this heart-warming stop-motion mockumentary.

After moving into an Airbnb, struggling filmmaker Dean meets a sweet little shell called Marcel, who lives there with his grandmother. Following a mysterious tragedy, Marcel’s entire family have disappeared. When Dean starts filming Marcel, the group are thrown into internet fame, as the world gathers to see if Marcel will be able to reunite with his lost family.
