Addidas, a bright and quirky young girl, spends most of her time helping her father as a chimney sweep. When she ventures too far into a chimney, she encounters a bizarre new friend and, in the process, destabilizes her world’s long-established system. From prolific independent European creators Wazem and Peeters comes a touching and existential story that balances its fantastical elements with poignant and realistic themes.
