Synopsis

On a lemon tree, a caterpillar is born. It is supposed to grow there until morphing into a butterfly. But a storm destroys this preset scheme and makes it fall and get carried away by the rain and the wind.

The caterpillar has only about 3 days to return to its tree, the only place to achieve its mutation. It then undertakes a journey against the clock, passing through several miniaturized ecosystems: the flowerbed, the lawn, the sand alley, or the forest. On its way, it makes encounters, dangerous or not, such as the glow-worm, the lasius niger ant, or the praying mantis.

Through this journey of survival, we discover the incredible richness of microworlds, where one small step for man is a lifetime expedition for a tiny insect.
