based on the book by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
An aviator crashes his plane in the Sahara Desert. There he meets a little prince who has left his home on Asteroid B-612 and its only other inhabitant, his beloved rose. Along the way he discovers a parade of extraordinary individuals from a king to a businessman to a fox. Each peels back another layer of what it means to be alive, ultimately revealing the importance of personal connection and sacrifice in a wold that seeks to diminish that which connects us.
The most translated book in the French language, this allegory remains a beautiful example of personal struggle manifesting itself as transcendent art. Saint-Exupéry’s fantastical musing, inspired by the fall of France to fascist Germany, is at once delightfully imaginative and deeply philosophical.
