Synopsis

'What color is your door?' · 'It’s blue.' · 'What should I do? Look for a blue door?' · 'Yes. I mean… go on. Is it that one? Look, here?' · 'No.'

Three-and-a-half-year-old Cléo is brilliant at hide-and-seek: her brother Paul and their nanny have no chance of finding her. At some point Cléo herself no longer knows which route she took through the park. Suddenly there are strangers everywhere. They’re hunting Pokémons and none of them really notice her. So Cléo decides to stick with the woman who looks just as lost as she is, and together they explore their worlds anew. Paul, too, gains new perspectives when he finds himself alone among the other children: he discovers what Paris is like when one is out and about without adults.
