Larger than life, dressed in suit and tie, papa appears at the window one evening, with a gift for his son. Papa is strong and brave – he frees animals from captivity, wins races with his superfast car, dives down into the depths of the ocean. Papa is a sorcerer who can make himself appear and disappear magically. In gently illustrated images, this animated film tells of a child’s poignant longing for his absent father.
