Kilian receives a gift of tickets to the zoo. In front of the lions’ enclosure, his gaze plunges into that of a lion cub. Immediately, a strong bond develops between them, giving birth to a silent friendship. The young feline slips into the boy’s dreams, and he returns again and again to the zoo to show his friend the images in an encyclopedia lent to him by his teacher. Lions, photographs of Africa, wide open spaces… “Look, this is your home! The cub does not know these landscapes, but he dreams of traveling through them…
This relationship intrigues the adults; a relationship is created, until the day when, torn between joy and sadness, Kilian promises his friend that he will soon be able to run like crazy.
In this story, Kilian, by simply opening the eyes of the adults thanks to his friendship with the lion cub, accomplishes what everyone would like to do for the animals locked up in too small spaces: offer them a little more horizon.
