'The Tales of Florensia' follow the journey and exploits of an autistic orphan girl, Siriol, and a small dragon. These two characters come from completely different worlds, but they share a common goal in that each one is trying to find where they belong. Siriol begins by helping the dragon find his mother only to discover other fantastical creatures who have been driven from their homes. She is told of a Utopian land known as Florensia, where all the creatures can be safe. So she decides to find that land.
Along the way, Siriol and the dragon will travel through many different environments and meet many other characters and creatures, each facing their own crisis - relating to social or ecological problems.
What the audience will see is that despite the characters coming from different worlds, in order to find where they belong, they learn to communicate in their own special way.
