Our story takes place high up in the alps. There where the snow is immaculate, where chamois chase marmots, where the summits touch the clouds. High up in a peaceful village - until the day the Germans arrive. It's the story of a lonely boy and a wild dog. The story of Sébastien who tames Belle. It's the adventure of an indestructible friendship. It's the extraordinary tale of a resourceful and appealing child in the middle of World War Two. It's the odyssey of a little boy searching for his mother, of an old man searching for his past, of a member of the Resistance searching for love, of a young woman looking for adventure, of a German lieutenant searching for forgiveness. It's the life of Belle and Sébastien…
