At the crack of dawn, Louise, Philippe and their three sons--Simon, age 19, Félix, 16 and Étienne, 14--hit the road with their travelling puppet show, Le Théâtre de La Mouette. This time they are setting off for the Maritimes and Newfoundland, their seventh tour in ten years. They have already crossed Canada from east coast to west, and north to the Yukon, taking their amusing play with its serious ecological message to the remotest towns and villages. Like the wandering entertainers of yore, the d'Hauterive family spends gruelling months on the road. But they have freely chosen this life style as a different way of travelling, learning, and enjoying their freedom. Interspersing scenes of family life with spectacular scenery and music from around the world, the film invites the spectator along to share the joys and tribulations of this very special family. In French with English subtitles.
