Martin is a ten-year-old boy and on the day of his birthday strange things begin to happen in the ancient forest. Two unusual strangers move into the forest, a girl Teah and her mother. However, their ominous presence announces a much greater disaster; tension can be felt in the forest, trees become anxious, even the old chestnut, Martin’s friend, looks worried. Signs appear on the trees. Is it possible that they are about to cut all the ancient trees, that offered shelter to elves, just in order to build a new road? Martin urgently needs a real friend. A friend of flesh and blood that would help him save the forest. Fiction and reality are inseparable in the forest. In order to prevent the very old magic, Martin has to confront with the real world first. On his way he will become aware of something unusual; the magic does not have its habitat in the forest. It lives in people’s hearts.

Vesna Award
best supporting role
2007

Sandi Krošl je verjetno odigral svojo najmanjšo filmsko vlogo, a se je z impresivno, komaj zaznavno igro, vklopil v filmsko snovanje Hanne Slak.

Vesna Award
best sound design
2007

S platna zaslišimo zvoke, da gozd zasluti nesrečo. Komaj slišno šumenje skozi vejevje, čutni dotik lubja, nenehna šelestenja dajejo filmu razsežnost režiserkinega magičnega realizma.
