This is the story of a man called Babine and his fellow villagers: Toussaint Brodeur the Fly-tamer, a blacksmith in love with a widow from St. Barnabé who cheats on him with the "old-model" priest; Méo the hairdresser whose love for the bottle gives his customers strange hairdos; Madame Gélinas, who has been pregnant for the last two decades and who can't seem to make her cakes rise up anymore; the beautiful "belle Lurette" who has been crying her eyes out and peeling petals off daisies ever since her true love went to War; and, last but not least, Babine, the Witch's son, at odds with the strict "shiny-new" priest.

Discover the world of Fred Pellerin, a place where oxes can fall in love and where a clock can grow from where a pocket watch is sown.
