When orphaned nine-year-old Ikar is placed into foster care, everyone calls him Courgette. At first, the other kids laugh at him and tease him out of spite, but Courgette soon learns about friendship and love among them. It's because the best family might be the one you choose yourself. The charming animated film was greeted with excitement at the 69th Cannes IFF and awarded at several international festivals.
