This collection follows the epic ordeals of boys and girls living around the world. Each must face a grueling and impressive challenge in order to make the difficult passage to adulthood.

During each ordeal they must prove their intelligence, courage and maturity. Success will mean a new status and responsibilities within each community - but success isn't guaranteed. If they fail, they will remain children, until the next challenge.

The first three episodes won the Export Award in 2006 for the most distributed French documentary abroad. Each film from the collection have also won many awards in international festivals.

Today, the collection continues to grow and ZED produces one new episode per year.
