Brief synopsis

A little boy walks through a toy store full of people talking a strange and incomprehensible language. Alone he bonds with a young mother who finds a way to communicate with him without words. He is going to tell her something she never expected.

================

Ein kleiner Junge geht allein durch ein Spielzeuggeschäft, vorbei an Leuten, die eine komische und für ihn unverständliche Sprache sprechen. Eine junge Mutter findet einen Weg, ohne Sprache mit ihm zu kommunizieren. Doch auf das, was er ihr dann erzählt, ist sie nicht vorbereitet.
