In a city in Eastern Europe, young Marco wanders away from his parents and his familiar landmarks. Near a broken-down old carousel he meets Sarah and Rose, two street kids who dream of faraway places, along with a rather disturbing old Italian clown. Marco’s new companions set out to show him around this foreign city, each in their own way, leading to an expedition that is sometimes harsh and sometimes poetic. Petites Bûches is a fable about trusting others, and about the element of chance that is a part of every journey.
