Plot & Details
A ten-year-old girl from Barcelona encounters a young bushman who inspires her to learn more about Africa in this educational -- and visually dazzling -- fantasy adventure. With a young Himba boy named Mel as her guide and a winged horse to carry her across the land, young Jana discovers the beauty of the Namib Desert while learning about the remarkable creatures that inhabit it. Later, Mel introduces Jana to the Guardian of the Stories and the Spirit of the Fire, and teaches her about such timeless African traditions as the Tree of Ancestors. In the wake of an illuminating encounter with a young girl named Galla, who helps to heal plants, Jana befriends a fairy who teaches her the true power of imagination.
