Ina Findeisen: Mercury Bird
Five animals live in a clearing in the woods: a fox, a badger, a mole and a mother panda with her cub. They collect fruit every day, to store for the winter. But youngest, the little panda cub, isn’t allowed to help because he is too little and too weak. One day he finds a glowing egg with a bird hatching out of it. This is a big help for the animals. But because they are so greedy and immoderate, they do not just destroy the bird and their home, they almost destroy themselves as well.
Now it is up to the cub to make the right decision: should he stay with his family or run away with the bird?
