    Brief synopsis

    Hugo lebt in seiner eigenen Welt, in der Symmetrie und Ordnung herrschen. Den Kontakt zur Außenwelt meidet er bis zu dem Tag, als seine Lieblingsbriefmarke beschließt, aus dem offenen Fenster geweht zu werden. Wie eine kleine Fee lockt sie Hugo immer weiter in das turbulente Treiben des Hamburger Hafens und schenkt ihm ein Abenteuer, das sein Leben verändern wird.

    Hugo lives alone in his own world where symmetry and tidiness reign. One day, his most favourite stamp with an Indian rickshaw motive decides to get blown out of the window. Leaving his room becomes inevitable. Like a little fairy the stamp drives him further and further into the liveliness of Hamburg's port where Hugo experiences an adventure that will change his life.
