What happens when you get literally lost inside your favorite book? Adventure seeking Juliette and her sister Carmen are faced with these very questions when they are dropped off at their neighbor’s house and quite literally drop into Juliette’s favorite fantasy book, featuring the mysterious Sirocco and The Kingdom of the Winds.

The sisters are quickly separated in this new fantastical land which features flying divas, technicolor dragons, and other mind-melting creations. While they have to figure out how to reunite and escape back into the real world, they find it harder than they imagined to leave their new magical world and curious friends. 

Many years in the making, Sirocco is a singular vision. Director Benoît Chieux has created a world that references the psychedelic wonder of films like Yellow Submarine and The Fantastic Plane but with a unique point of view that makes you, like the young protagonists, want to get truly lost in the airy majesty of this strange kingdom.
