A captivating adaptation of Jean Giono’s wonderful environmental cult classic.

A French Shepherd sets out with his dog to plant a forest and transform a barren wasteland. As war rages across Europe, their young forest comes under threat.

A unique blend of comedy, puppetry and storytelling with sensory effects creating scents, wind and rain. An inspiring and unforgettable story that shows us the difference one man (and his dog!) can make to the world.

“Laughs, heartbreak, war, regeneration, scented breezes, sparkling wit and the best dog puppet ever. Perfect for children and grown ups. Terrific.' Guardian
