It’s bed time. Toma’s mother is reading him the story about the Ant and the Grasshopper. The characters from the book come to life, and take us to a magical animated world. Unhappy with the way the story unfolds, Toma decides to tell his own version, in which the events take an unexpected turn.
Poet Tone Pavček wrote: “When you walk, always go to the end...”
The film take us on a journey among Pavček’s verses, literary or abstractly conveyed in an imaginary world of two characters.
A piano takes us above the clouds, we chase flowers and roam colourful hills, board a flying ship to watch houses growing on stems, to ultimately come to a metaphoric depiction of Pavček’s “principle”: Try again and again and again.

A little girl lives with three buffalo. She feeds them and smothers them with kisses, she loves them so. At the onset of the night they would all rush home, making sure doors, windows and curtains are all shut tight. One night, though, they forget to close the window.
