Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince is the world’s most translated book; it was published in more than 375 languages. Why do people from highly diverse cultures choose this particular book to keep their endangered languages and cultures alive? This inspiring documentary gives the floor to different translators, from Tibetans to Sahara dwellers and a last generation in El Salvador that still speaks Nawat. They each have a dramatic story and individual motivations to translate this work, which perfectly aligns with the wisdom contained in the famous French book.
