Liv & Bell, the story of Liv, a girl with a big ribbon, and Bell, a colorful hedgehog, who travel in the flying house with an inventor pig.
One day, the flying house lands in a beautiful but Lackluster town.
On the outskirts of town, there is a lot of nature, but there is also a factory spewing black smoke.

When Liv and Bell go out into the town, they are guided by beautiful insects and meet curious-looking creatures.

The creatures lie in long, thin shapes.
They are making a path between the town and the forest.

Why did the creatures appear in this world?

A beautiful story is spun in stop-motion animation with a set made of paper craft pop-ups in the background, full of surprises to stimulate children's imagination.

Is it possible for nature and civilization to live together?
This is a message to the children who will live in the world of the future.
