Johannes Weiland: Annie & Boo

A railway station. The vaulted glass roofs arch high over the silence between the empty rails. If any trains are coming, they are still far away.
Annie, eleven, is a loner investigating this perfect 19th century glass and steel construction – built for tramping feet and whistles and the hiss and thunder of trains stopping or speeding through. Suddenly, the silence is broken by a racket. With a rattle, a signal changes to green, and a startled flock of pigeons flutters away into the upper regions of the vast vaulted roof. The turbulent friendship between Annie and Boo, who is coincidence personified, can begin. Annie feels responsible for everyone and everything. Boo, the coincidence being, is lazy and likes peace and quiet and a sleep in the corners of the railway station. But whenever Boo yawns, something unexpected happens, throwing Annie's ordered plan and schedule into confusion.
