In the forest, the stars are shining brightly. The snow crunches and the crows look down from the branches of the trees. A creature is slowly climbing a ladder which stretches its way up, over the treetops. With the help of a coin, the sun comes up and the village comes to life. A playful, beautiful film about life and death and how the Sun makes its way across the sky.
