Of tin, paper and toys that come to life
A child's room full of wonderful toys. Twenty-five tin soldiers looking exactly like each other live in a box. Only the last one is different. He is missing a leg. But he is just as steadfast and brave as his brothers. He falls in love with the enchanting little dancer at the paper castle who, just like him, stands on just one leg. The black goblin interferes. Or was it a gust of wind that blew the brave tin soldier off the window sill and down into the street? An exciting odyssey begins: the tin soldier rides through the gutter in a paper boat, meets a water rat and is swallowed by a fish. Will he ever see his beloved dancer again?
