    • Synopsis
    • Adeline has it all. She is beautiful, smart and gainfully employed as an airline stewardess. But ever since the tragic loss of her husband and child, the only connections in Adeline’s life have involved flight plans. The one person close to her is her sister
      Delphine, who spends all her spare time in Adeline’s flat, “looking after” her. So when her Chinese cleaning lady vanishes, leaving her six-year-old son in her home, Adeline’s carefully balanced life is turned upside down. All her efforts to find the boy’s mother hit brick walls and the boy himself - nicknamed Cookie - doesn’t speak a word
      of French! Finally, Adeline and Delphine are able to track down the kid’s mom, only to find out she was deported to China. Now deeply attached to the boy, both sisters decide to brave enormous risks to bring the kid back to his mother in China. Little Cookie is a deeply moving film about the bonds between a young woman and a little boy as foreign to
      each other as Paris and Beijing.
