Monsieur Noir and the Monsters from the Basement

Little Jacques is terribly afraid of the dark cellar.
There are monsters waiting for him and in his vivid imagination they come to life.
Besides the monsters, there is also Monsieur Noir, a sinister, sinister fellow who personifies the fear of Jacques. He makes fear visible, stronger, more threatening, almost insurmountable.
But only almost, because there are fears that only exist in the mind and therefore can be overcome ... if you only try.
