Next to the Bible, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the world; in more than 375 languages. Why do people from very diverse cultures choose precisely this book to keep their threatened languages and cultures alive? From Sami in the highlands of Samiland to Tamazight spoken on the desert planes of the Sahara. From Tibetan taught in exile in Paris to Nawat still spoken by a last generation in El Salvador. Every translator has a dramatical story and motivation to translate this book. Through the air we connect these languages and cultures. With the words of the little prince we stretch a line across the world in which the notions of comfort and hope, that are so beautifully interlaced in The Little Prince, find their echo in the struggle of the translators and their friends. No matter how much their cultures differ, what connects them is that they are able to convince us that it is essential for people to be allowed to think, dream and speak in their native language.

An inspiring human film which carries out the wisdom of the Little Prince.
