Can it fly or not? We’re talking about the bumblebee. There’s a persistent rumour that it’s physically impossible to move such a body through the air without help. When the bumblebee learns of these doubts, it starts to think – it hadn’t expected so little confidence. The saving realisation comes just before the crash, so it begins a daring flight upwards.

The children’s room is dark and everyone’s asleep. But wait: really everyone? In the colourful mess, the building blocks wake up and suddenly birds, elephants and giraffes are grazing in the savannah and meeting at the water hole. The alarm clock puts an abrupt end to the hustle and bustle. The building blocks lie around scattered and lifeless once more – until the next sunset.

Crowley is only 14 but almost a real cowboy. Riding, mending fences, shooting and cleaning stables are among his daily chores at the farm. Only one last step is missing to follow in his big brother’s footsteps: participating in a rodeo. Now the motto is “Cowboy up!” and stay on the bull as long as possible.

A little house with a view of the sea – that’s what the hero of Christian Kaufmann’s film wants. But the stormy weather makes it almost impossible to build the new home. After many attempts to build a stable dwelling it almost looks as if fate was giving him a big “No way!” A film about failure and the fact that you can also turn the tables.

Once upon a time there was a curious tiny frog who wanted to meet all the animals of the forest. What are the others doing all day long, he wondered? What is their favourite food? Zebras, giraffes and birds tell him – probably partly to make the tiny frog move on and leave them alone. It’s only at his last meeting that he has to be careful not to end up as dinner.

Five people between the ages of 10 and 84 talk about why they had to leave their home and what it was like to arrive in Germany. What is different? What do they miss? Between scenes of daily life at the new school and on the football ground the lives that Ahmad, Frau Schiller, Leila, Lena and Cacau left behind and the stories of the flights they lived through come alive in animated sequences.
