When shipwrecked pirates invade the formerly peaceful Moomin Valley, the Moomins, Snorkmaiden, and Little My decide it’s time to take a vacation — so away the hippo household goes, in search of adventure. And nothing says “adventure” like a trip to the chic and sunny French Riviera! But the charmingly innocent Moomins — who are mistaken for rich nobles — soon find themselves overwhelmed by a world of glitz and glamor. Snorkmaiden is pursued by a love-sick bachelor; Moominpappa befriends an aristocrat and adopts the name “de Moomin”; and an exasperated Moominmamma decides to live on the beach until her family and friends come to their senses. There’s one misunderstanding after another — and what will happen when the Moomins get the bill for the luxury suite at their overpriced hotel?
