They are best friends: David sits at his grandfather’s bed and listens to his stories. Never mind that grandpa sometimes falls asleep in the middle, because he still makes the best jokes and knows everything about the forest and mushrooms. At last the two embark on an exhausting but fun trip to the forest. It’s to be their last, and in the end David is left with a helicopter and the secret of the place where the best chanterelles grow.
Fifteen minutes of lightness can be enough to say everything about the eternal cycle of life and death. So wise that every child can understand it.
