This collection of new French animation is a visually stunning display of the power the animated form has to offer.

French animation is always at the top of any awards list -- come see why! In one film, a young wolf ventures out of his burrow for the first time while his mother is busy hunting. Jeanne, Gaston and Louis, find him, and decide to bring him back to his home. In another film, one snowy day a sister enlists her brother to recreate a childhood adventure. In the last film, Colin travels to the Arctic on an adventure he hadn't planned for.
