Plot synopsis
Non scientific observations on the jumping fellow's life.
Animals and other weird tiny creatures live in holes jumping up and down all day long. They create a picture of a carefree life full of fun, and it seems that nothing can disrupt it. But what if someone falls out of rhythm? A playful film about tiny creatures meeting each other, getting lost and found again is underscored by a melodic musical background, giving it a touch of nostalgia.
