Returning to childhood… remembering a specific and memorable moment! What could be better than meeting your future best friend on your birthday? “She is the friend I always dreamed of; I am the friend she was waiting for.” However, this beautiful new friendship comes at a cost… The little girls can only see each other again if the Queen of the Night agrees. What will she decide? Pierre Mornet’s stroke is instantly recognisable; large paintings, of a neat classicism and rounded perfection, with a certain underlying strangeness and melancholy. Here, it originates from dreams and nostalgia. A mysterious and original story, somewhere between dreamland and reality, that will leave no one indifferent.
