A storm knocked down a giant, magic oak. People did not know its strength and made of it hundreds of wooden items; each item has preserved a piece of this magical power. Two children, who ran away from their much-hated aunt to their mother who works in Belgium, find a chair made of the magic wood. The chair has the ability to act as a living creature and fulfil the wishes of everyone who sits on it...

"The Award winner is a fantastic story full of humor and joyful events. The film is full of good energies and the most important thing is that it’s made for children, to children and actuality is the story also inspired by children. This important point of view makes the film both magic and beautiful." (Jury's statement at Kristiansand 2010)
