A striking animation feature co-produced by Luxembourg. Antis is a 16 year old boy considered by his elder brothers to be soft in the heart and slow in the mind. Despite their ridicule, Antis is deeply committed to bringing the beautiful Princess down from the Glass Mountain where she is kept in a glass coffin by the Black Mother. He is helped and guided on his journey by the White Father, a sworn enemy of the Black Mother. The White Father recognizes the goodness of Antis' heart and encourages him to fight for the Princess' life. It seems an impossible mission as the struggle involves fighting against Antis' greedy and nasty brothers, the ruthless Cruel Prince and the smart and evil Black Mother herself. The open–hearted and brave Antis is not discouraged and through hardship and various tests reaches his goal – saving the beautiful Princess and the entire kingdom from the Black Mother's destructive powers.

Un film d’animation extraordinaire, co-produit par le Luxembourg. Bien qu'étant la risée de ses frères aînés cruels, Antis, le plus jeune fils de la famille, se lance dans une mission pour sauver la belle Princesse de la Montagne de verre où elle a été emprisonnée par la Mère noire, une sorcière maléfique qui se nourrit de la tristesse des autres. Lors de son voyage, Antis profite de l’aide du Père blanc, l'ennemi juré de la Mère noire. Cependant, Antis se rend vite compte qu'il y a beaucoup plus d'obstacles dans sa quête. Antis sera-t-il en mesure de sauver la Princesse grâce à sa persistance et sa bravoure, et défaire la Mère noire ?
