When his father dies, Doppler decides to leave everything behind and start a new life in the forest. There, deep amongst the trees, he reconnects with nature, ponders the meaning of life, and bonds with a baby elk called Bongo.
Sweet, funny and subversive, this is a charming fable about the pressures of modern existence and finding friends in the strangest of places.
