The Big Adventure of a Little Line

An app for tablet and mobile and a short film based on the work of Serge Bloch

A boy is out walking when he spots a tiny little line lying around on the ground. He puts it in his pocket without thinking and forgets about it. But the line starts to move – it’s alive ! That is the start of a long, shared adventure. The little line grows up with the boy and becomes his friend. It takes on all kinds of shapes reflecting life’s many emotional nuances. It’s magical !
And though the line sometimes gives the boy a hard time and sulks or even hides, it also helps him, encourages and rescues him, surprises and makes him laugh.


The Big Adventure of a little Line is a cartoon tale, an ode to drawing.
We invite everyone, from the very young to the very old, to take part in the many stages in a life-long friendship between a little boy and his red line.
