Céleste is having a hard time at school. She can’t make any friends in her class, so she decides she may be from outer space, where she hopes people are more like her. At which point she starts building a spaceship capable of bringing her back to her home planet. That’s when 9-year-old Martin joins in, and the adventure takes a new turn… By bringing us into the rich and colourful world of a little girl unlike any other, Extra-Céleste shows us how seeing the world differently is sometimes its own magical reward.
