During his holiday, Marcel meets Lili, a local boy who knows all the secrets of the hills, and the two become fast friends. Adapted from the novel by Marcel Pagnol (MANON OF THE SPRING). MY MOTHER'S CASTLE: In this sequel to MY FATHER'S GLORY, young Marcel Pagnol (Julien Ciamaca) and his family move back to their home in Marseilles, France, far from their pastoral holiday cottage in the hills. Determined, Marcel makes the long voyage back to the cottage on foot and lands himself in trouble. One day Marcel's father (Philippe Caubère) discovers a shortcut to the cottage, but it requires trespassing. Despite their trepidations, Marcel and his family begin using the secret trail to reach their cottage. Adapted from the novel by Marcel Pagnol (author of MANON OF THE SPRING).
