Our hero is the most adorable 3D fly in the world!

Τhe camera follows him from his very first moment of birth.

His life is impressively exciting!

He experiences each moment as if it was his last one.

Following his adventure of life, he learns to fly, to survive, to follow his instincts, to find his food, to claim, to be fascinated, to find love, to be disappointed, to risk and to collect valuable experiences, until he meets a human being for the first and the last time…

You see, human arrogance does consider the life of such a small insect that important.

After all, once upon a time there was a good decent lady who swallowed a fly…..
