These shorts depict heroes who are fearless and will stop at nothing to have adventure.


Adventure awaits for these French-speaking explorers. In one film, when the school bus doesn't arrive, Iris and Leo decide to take a holiday, exploring Montreal. In another film, in a faraway land where the rain never stops, Kyna spends her days playing carelessly under the protective "umbrella-beard" of her father, Din. One night, Kyna’s beloved dog, Nana, disappears. Kyna embarks on an adventure to find Nana, and herself. In the last film, a peacock prince seeks adventure and the reward is richer than he ever imagined.
