Confronted with feelings of emptiness and doubt, drunk with unhappiness, and seeking to drown his sorrow, Barnabé experiences a curious metaphysical visitation; lightning strikes the spire of his church and a mysterious bird appears, forcing him to reconsider his life. What is his truth pointing him towards? What is the deeper meaning of his life on earth?

Director Jean-François Lévesque deploys a spectacular arsenal of animation techniques to bring Barnabé to life and illustrate his spiritual quest, achieving an extraordinary level of visual refinement in both the puppets and the settings.
