The adventure of a boy, who experiences the power of memories. A story about friendship, fears and searching and finding.


Short summary of the leading boy

Standing on the edge of a wheat field, Martin remembers his friend Moritz with tears in his eyes. But in some kind of anger, realising that the ball, he holds in his hands, doesn’t make any sense, because he is all alone and his best friend is gone, he kicks it into the field. By searching the ball, Martin gets deeper and deeper inside the field and inside an other world. There he meets Moritz. That is so unexpected and unbelievable for him, that he gets scared. No happiness but fears overcome him, because of the inexplicable reunion. After anxious running around the two boys finally get in touch and Moritz gives a remembrance of his current world to Martin. (Moritz Gleitsmann)
