Four stories. Four puppeteers. Four tales from the four cardinal points tell us about happenings between heaven and earth. About an old man, who is given firewood and gold by a slender birch tree; about cranes, who yearn for a journey to the far south; about a young fisherman, who finds a skeleton in the cold Arctic Ocean and about a stone, which provides the animals with a sociable evening. Four mini-plays about stones and bones, about feathers and wood. They are about people and animals, about freedom and greed, but above all, about the wonderful power of love and community.
