A small flower fallen from a basket

Found herself alone one day lost in a meadow.

Far from all his family and friends

And not knowing what to do,

However, she decided to put her things there.

But how to live happily far from any friendship?

Little lost flower, completely uprooted.

Then finally the suns of an announced spring

When a little bee nuzzled his ear...


The little flower that wanted to flytells the story of a little garden flower that one day finds itself lost by a little boy in the middle of a meadow.

Alone on a land she does not know, far from all her brothers and sisters in grandfather's garden, the little stranger has no other solution but to try to adapt if she wants to survive. But the resistances in this new environment are numerous and the little flower is struggling to establish itself.

This little boy has a new neighbour, Maumachi, which means “ Abeille ” in Bangladeshi, a young climate refugee girl who had to leave her country following the flooding of the land . She experienced the trauma of "the great crossing" where several of her brothers and sisters sank.

What intersecting destinies bring together the little boy, his stray little flower and Maumachi ?

The little flower that wanted to fly is a show of environmental resistance to global warming and its consequences on biodiversity.

By recounting the crossroads of a small flower uprooted from its land and a young climate refugee, it also addresses the themes of migration, world cultures, travel. He talks about the other and questions us about our relationship to him, to our differences and to the richness that exchanges bring us.

"My name is Maumachi
And I'm your neighbor
I come from a distant land
where the sun flooded the earth
Then the ocean flooded my brothers
A stormy day
We fell from a boat no bigger than a basket"
