Synopsis

This beautiful animation, made by the same people behind A Town Called Panic, is a charming story based on the popular children's books by Gabrielle Vincent. In a world where bears are in charge and mice are downtrodden creatures, an unlikely friendship is formed: Ernest, a large brown bear working as a clown and musician, meets tiny Celestine, a clever little orphan mouse who has run away from a life where she doesn't fit in. They have a very happy friendship until the other bears and mice find out and their anger forces the pair to hide. This lovely film explores themes of friendship, belonging and tolerance as Ernest and Celestine embark on an exciting and funny adventure.
