Daddy Balloon

  • One fine day, all grown-ups turn into balloons. No more Daddy to stop Hana eating ice cream, just a balloon. No more Grandma to grow tomatoes, just a balloon.


    Hana, Camille, Klaus and Lucas hold their helpless Daddy-Balloons and start to enjoy their newfound freedom. But a gust of wind and… the balloon flies away!


    A beautiful fable in which the children take the place of the parents to learn how to grow up. Before finding out that being a child is way more fun, even if a Daddy Balloon makes a good toy.
