3D-animation. – Grandfather welcomes us in his blue cave, to tell us new stories about Kirikou, who as a child may have been small, but who was already bright and
brave. Beautiful stories about the way he helped the men and women of his African village. For example, when the sorceress Karaba destroyed the roof of the strong woman’s hut. We learn how cleverly the small hero tracked down an old grouser who was lost in the savannah, and how a griotte, threatened by the sorceress, finally managed to pass down her knowledge to the
villagers. Moreover, the secret of the mysterious blue monster is revealed, and owing to a flute from Kirikou’s family we discover the magical power of music.

3rd film with the successful Kirikou-character.
