Synopsis: Vast plains, colorful sceneries, and a red dog that seems to reach into the sky. This is how Tom experiences summer at Blieschow, his grandfather’s farm. He feels overwhelmed by the exuberance of nature, and finds himself in constant competition with his cousin – who seems to be better than him at everything. Tom soon reaches his limits as envy starts to grow, and he begins doing everything he can think of to be recognised and loved.
