An exhausted girl, trying to isolate herself from the reality, hides in an abandoned, huge silo. She is not trying to leave it because she is not strong enough to do it. She does not even notice that there is a ladder next to the wall. Is there anything that will lend meaning to her life? The silo in the animation is a metaphor of depressed children. They cannot help themselves and their parents do not realise what is going on in the children’s minds. In a subtle, yet suggestive way, the animation, employing poignant music by Zbigniew Preisner, shows problems that the youngest have to face.
