Kiki was a black-and-white foxterrier who lived during World War 2. A born Parisian, Kiki is adopted by the German Army and travels through Europe all the way to Russia in the winter of 1942. After getting seriously ill, he settles down in Germany and becomes a pacifist and father.
This exceptional story is reconstructed from photos, 8mm-film and a written account of Kiki's extraordinary life. Kiki changes in the perception of his contemporaries from French to German and from soldier to pacifist. His animal instinct lets him overcome the obstacles of war, poverty, peace and parenthood - and makes us think.
