Why does Feuille, a little person captured by poachers, arouse such excitement in the country's political and scientific class? She speaks of course! But that is not the only reason why she will be pursued, despite the help given to her by Fulgence the journalist and the young Léopoldine, a student of sciences and the daughter of a famous professor. From traps to incredible escapes and false trails to real danger, Fulgence and Léopoldine will eventually discover the terrible truth. Against a backdrop of political intrigue, romance and madness is a fantastic adventure whose feline, porcine and canine actors show concerns that are very... human.
It is an extraordinary and strange world packed with allusions to literature and genre cinema, with its pure-hearted heroes and its final dramatic turn of events.
