A solitary fox finds itself improvising fatherhood for a freshly hatched baby bird. Two paths cross and a family is formed, until fate reminds each of the life it is meant to lead.
Sam and Fred Guillaume were born in Freiburg (Switzerland) on October 7, 1976. They entered the animation world in 1998 realizing their first film, Le petit Manchot qui Voulait une Glace. Excited about this first experience, the two brothers decided to make it into a profession and they have produced films, commercials, scientific films and short films on commission. From 2003 to 2007, they produced their first feature film Max & Co, which has been released in more than 20 countries. This feature film has won also the Audience award at the Annency Festival. In addition to all the motion pictures, they also collaborate in the sensibilization of the public opinion through the kids club La Lanterne Magique.
