A Story with Foxes

  • A very tender family story, about finding your own way to live an adventure.


    A father and his two kids go on a hike on Fox Mountain. Contrary to his energetic dad and his adventurous little sister, the son is more of a lazy daydreamer... Will he miss the encounter with the fox his father said they would find on the mountain top?

    Between paths, forests, streams and mica stones, nature offers memories of all kinds.
