KIDS 6-12

Simon & the Egg

By Michel Lefebvre


A multimedia journey to another world that reflects our own.

Mysterious packages containing clues and riddles lead The Man to a fragile island state called Penumbra. Once beautiful and full of life, Penumbra is dying from the effects of climate change and environmental catastrophes. Unsure of why he is sent there, The Man slowly realizes that Penumbra reflects his own world, the planet Earth. He is awakened to the idea that we need to respect our environment and not abandon hope that we can make a difference and turn things around.




“Layered with meaning and metaphor, it does not preach, nor does it offer answers.”

The Montreal Gazette
