Official synopsis

Here is our improbable team of flying doctors: Princess Pearl accompanied by Messire Tagada and Zog the dragon. They heal all kinds of creatures until the storm forces them to land at the castle. A princess doctor? The king doesn't really agree, but Perle is determined to lead the life she has chosen...

Preceded by the short films "La Princesse et le bandit", "Vive les mousquetaires !" and "La Princesse aux grandes jambes"

The programmer’s eye

"Zog" and the program preceding it deal with princesses… Again? No worries; no more princesses waiting for their prince charmings! Our heroines aren’t (stereotypical) canons of beauty and take their destiny in hand!

— Natacha Seweryn
