It's ball season in the Pompon Kingdom, but Princess Cici still falls ... asleep. At the Christmas ball, the kissing ball, the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge ball or her birthday ball, nothing to do, we always find her eyes closed, huddled in a corner. But what do all those feathers fallen from the sky mean? The Princess did exist, until the day she flew away. Drawing inspiration from her own story, Marie-Josée Gauvin offers us a touching allegory on perinatal mourning.
