cert. PG | by J-L. Felicioli & A. Gagnol, 2016, 85′, animation, in French with English subtitles

In New York, a mysterious man injures Alex, a police inspector tailing him. Bedridden in hospital, Alex encounters Léo, an eleven-year-old boy with superpowers. Like a phantom, invisible to all, he can fly and pass through walls. The masked gangster threatens the city with a computer virus. Thanks to the boy’s superpowers, Alex starts up his investigation again.
