Jonas wanted to fly

Jonas wanted to fly

A coming of age story from the ice of the North Pole to the forests of Central Africa.

 Jonas is a puppy polar bear with a big big dream: to be able to fly like the birds he admires in the sky above his head. One day he leaves his family and goes on a long journey south, towards incredible adventures. Following a seagull’s feather, Jonas will discover the world and meet new friends: a monkey, a beaver and a group of imaginative children, who can help him fulfill his “impossible” desire.
