April, a 5-year-old English girl, is unhappy to move to France. From Paris, she relocated to the small mediaeval village, where her great grandfather lived in the South West of France. There she is convinced that he is only sleeping in the cemetery and that she will come back to be with her. While waiting for him she meets his old friends. With them she will open to the world, discover her inner self and in turn she will transform the adults around her forever.
