Synopsis: Adapted from the beloved classic children’s book, The Little Prince tells the story of a world-weary aviator whose plane crashes, stranding him in the middle of the Sahara Desert. When a mysterious, regal little boy appears and asks him to draw a sheep, the aviator is annoyed and distracted from his crisis–unaware that he is about to have a transforming experience.
