It's one of Bill Clinton's favorite political expressions:

When you see a turtle on a fence post, you know it didn't get there by itself. It doesn’t belong there. You wonder who put it there.

And now, you'll know, it’s not about the turtle!

Inspired by true events, Turtle fictionalizes the inside story of a prominent New Yorker thrown into an unknown world by New York’s most powerful man. At heart a vibrant tale of love and friendship, Turtle uses humor and song to deal with themes of freedom, forgiveness and truth, revealing how meaningful learning can arise in the most unexpected places and from the most surprising sources.
