    Nicolas Debon

    Alary Pierre

    The year is 1849, and the future state of California is under the control of former soldiers from the Mexican-American War.

But he and his men are dogged by a series of masked, would-be avengers all calling themselves Zorro. They are an almost laughable annoyance, simple peasants living out the fantasy of a local legend. Until one man shows up and starts picking off Gomez's men one by one, as stealthy as a fox. He brandishes a sword which he uses to carve the letter Z into his victims' cheeks... Could this be the true Zorro?

Self-conscious, she tries to assert herself within a group in which she is "the shy one". She spends most of her time with her girlfriends, at school or at parties on the weekend.

  • Forests were home to our most distant ancestors. They show us our history and link us to our past. When we enter a forest, we step back in time and rediscover life on Earth as it once was. Thanks to recent scientific discoveries, we now know that the animal world and the plant world are more alike than we thought, and that, in their own way, trees can sense, feel, and communicate. It is up to us to ensure that forests are sustainably managed, and that all the plants and animals that live in them and make up their ecosystem are protected for future generations.
