Tonda is not an ordinary boy; he's been shining since birth. Ashamed of this, and because his parents do not let him go anywhere, he prefers to spend all his time in his room. When Slávka, a girl with glasses and a “magic” flashlight, moves into the building, he doesn't trust her at first. Eventually, it turns out that the two may understand each other and that they might also unravel the secrets of the old apartment building. Is there some kind of monster, or is it a ghost running through the corridors and terrifying everyone? Why can only the old janitor talk to it? The poetic, visually captivating film using stop animation shows that one can deal with otherness in any form and that tolerance and responsibility are cards that one can always play, especially at a time when the ideals of tolerance, justice, and compassion are in doubt. This film for the whole family is presented in its world premiere.
