By Arnoux & Michaud

 Folianne

Folianne, a simple Shepherdess,

is led by strange voices

to the city of Brieuc.

There she must liberate a 10-year old girl

from the black Tower.

That girl is the result of an extramarital love.

But she is also no ordinary girl.

In reality she belongs to the fairie people, 

althoug she doesn’t  know that yet.

Will the gorgeous Folianne succeed in her mission,

or will she,

like the previous missionaries of the fairy people,

fail?

Or will the dark forces of sorcerer Narval,

the kuiperen of Marie-Black

and the rough soldiers

again get the upper hand? …
