Description

During their journey, the tiny travellers are faced with dangers, misfortunes and grand emotions. Scattered in a desolate, snow-covered landscape, they seek a path that may not even exist. Unlike the snow globes sold as souvenirs, these globes must not be shaken – or even touched. The only thing the viewer can do is to watch the eternal winter through the glass. The dream-like scenes take you on an inner journey to a place between comedy and horror.
