The first rays of sun appear. In the fields, in the woods, everything seems to come alive. The seeds become flowers, flowers become fruits, caterpillars become butterflies.

The wind blows, the leaves swirl, the animals will nest in their den … It’s the beginning of winter .. Mixing live show and animated film, “Mademoiselle Rêve” deals with the cycle of life . This story takes us on an initiatory journey through the seasons. It’s a hymn to nature!
