The Red Globe

Session for families

One morning on his way to school, Pascal finds an extraordinary red balloon caught in a lamppost. After climbing up to get it he takes it with him to school. He soon discovers that it has a mind of its own and has decided to follow him wherever he goes. Pascal walks around the streets of Paris accompanied by his new friend, who goes into shops with him and at the end of the day goes home with him; however, his grandmother forces him to leave it outside. The following morning, it all starts over again and Pascal takes up his friendship with the balloon again, until, jealous of the balloon, a gang of boys from the neighbourhood try to steal it from him.
