A modern-day fairy tale. Because the princesses of the 21st century no longer intend to wait all their lives for a Prince Charming to wake up, go dancing or galloping! Surrounded by puppet sculptures in a light and poetic setting, the actress Caroline Guyot, directed by Johanny Bert on a text adapted from a children’s novel, takes a fresh and joyful look at a young woman who questions love, friendship and what she is going to do with her life… with or without a husband!
