This film tells the little-known story of the birth in New York, in the midst of the Second World War, of the most widely translated book after the Bible. A universal and timeless story whose key to success - and the secret of its genesis - lies in the life of its author, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
The documentary covers the last four years of the writer-pilot's extraordinary life, between his exile in New York in 1940 and his disappearance in 1944. It was an intense period for the writer, in which love, politics and artistic intrigues were intertwined.
The Little Prince is a star book. To understand how this star was born is to understand what unites us, despite the distance and the years.
