This online film is part of a Christmas campaign of the brand Montblanc. It embodies their core message “Made by Hand” and tells a tale of a Parisian winter wonderland.

The movie came out in 4 episodes the weeks before Christmas. It is set in a handcrafted scenery made entirely out of paper and, except for a few minor effects, makes no use of computer animation.
