An epic adventure that touches on the burning worldwide issue of refugees and immigration 

A red Mother with Child, a 14th century African sculpture, is saved from the destructive madness of Islamists by Alou, a young honey hunter. In the company of other migrants, sisters, and brothers of misfortune, Alou goes all out to reach Europe. His goal and obsession: entrust the precious statuette to the Louvre Museum! A new and exciting addition to the ever-expanding Louvre collection that commissions graphic novels from leading world artists to spin tales around the famous museum.
