A pilot (the narrator) crashes his plane in the middle of the desert a thousand miles from anywhere.
Thinking he’s all alone and with limited water supplies, he starts to attempt to fix his plane. But a young boy suddenly appears one morning as if it was the most natural thing in the world. He demands that the pilot draw him a sheep.
Slowing, through the following days, the pilot, hearing the little prince’s story, rediscovers some truths about the truly important things in life.
The little prince comes from another planet, a very small planet. He leaves due to troubles getting on with his rose and decides to travel to learn about life.
During his journey he visits six planets and meets their inhabitants: a must see experience for students …
