Lili misses her grandma, her Baba, who lives near the Black Sea. On the seashore, Lili once found a tzaritza, a magic shell that grants one wish. The little girl soon hatches a clever plan to bring her grandma to Montreal and make her father a happy man... Theodore Ushev combines warmth, humour, magic and reality as he explores Bulgaria through the eyes of a six-year-old girl. The lively, luminous images are complemented by the music of Normand Roger. A fantastic journey set in motion by a magic shell.
