A serious illness is no excuse to be in a bad mood. Thea is an epileptic and loves to tell jokes – at which she herself laughs the loudest.

A silvery fish, a white rabbit, a small sparrow – two children look for dead animals by the sea and in the forest to bury them in their multicoloured cemetery named “Eternal Hunting Grounds”. The honest and at the same time magical story by Elin Grimstad makes the children discover what death means through their adventures. It is immediately captivating by its very plastic design, rich in different materials, its vibrant sound world and the emotional voice of its narrator.
