Summer holidays in a forest – Lene, a 7 year old from Mecklenburg, really isn’t in the mood for it. Nothing but trees, mountains and children with a funny accent – Bavarian.
But then there is the tale of ‚Peter of the Forest’, who is suppose to be trapped inside the ‚Grotto of the Sleeping Souls’. And the one of the mysterious Forest-Ursel whose soul is living on in the forest.

Lene is meeting Obelix of the forest and she is getting to know the best hiding places in the forest and is petting bees and donkeys.
At the end of her journey full of adventures, Lene knows who they are – The Spirits of the Forest.
