Perrine is a young girl who lives in Bosnia with her Indian mother and beloved father – that is, until her father passes away, leaving her mother with a single wish: travel to France to be with his father. The over 1,000 kilometer journey seems unfathomable, but Perrine and her mother have a plan: they will photograph people in the towns along the way to support themselves.

With their hardy donkey Palikare and faithful dog Baron, the two set forth for Paris; along the way they encounter kind souls, barren villages, and a number of hardships; will Perrine and her mother survive the long journey to France?

English is not my language.
This review I took some main points, it's not a detailed analysis of the work. It contains some spoilers.

After the death of her father, Perrine and her mother go on a journey to France. They go with a donkey named Palikare and her dog named Baron.
Honestly, I thought this anime was going to be an extremely dramatic journey, just like Ie Naki Ko. Well, the anime doesn't have the overdramatic journey that Ie Naki Ko has, and this is one of the ...
