Accompanied by a young delivery boy, she rides through the city and through the times of this golden era, and on her way she meets the most prestigious historical figures of our time such as artists, inventors and scientists – Monet, Rousseau, Pasteur, Proust, Debussy, Toulouse-Lautrec and many more inspires the high spirited little girl with their conversations. Marie Curie becomes a friend, Gustave Eiffel takes her to his office at the top of the tower, and Ferdinand von Zeppelin lends an aircraft to help rescue the missing girls. The film’s visual style is a stunning combination of animation and photography making the streets of Paris, it’s monuments and buildings come alive, as if we were on a grand tour ourselves.
