Wild Tales from the Village

Animal drama that tells the story of a year in the life of an extraordinary village, hidden away in the timeless French countryside. Narrated by Tcheky Karyo, this tale reveals the parallel world of incredible tiny creatures that live side by side with the unsuspecting humans.

Red squirrels, wild boar, edible dormice and a cunning stone marten all take advantage of the riches of the village, whilst doing their best not to get caught. Can they outwit the villagers and survive the seasons? Seen from the perspective of these secretive animals, their adventures are happening right beneath our feet.
