This new documentary explores the global legacy of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's timeless fable, 75 years after its publication. Following a modern day Little Prince – a seven-year-old, blind Pakistani-Canadian boy – and featuring conversations with Mark Osborne (Director of the animated film, The Little Prince), poet Rupi Kaur and Saint-Exupéry’s great nephew and nephew, Olivier and François d’Agay, the film delves into the genesis of this best-selling book, showing how the Little Prince’s life philosophy can become a code of respect for humanity.
