Short, tragicomic fairy-tale about the journey of an old man, his grandson and their mule. They try to choose the correct travelling modes, but are repeatedly confronted with grousing people along the road.
Short tragicomic fairy-tale, based on an Islamic fable from the thirteenth century. Andrej, in his eighties, and his six-year-old grandson Pico set out on a journey with their pack mule. Pico can sit on the mule’s back, but people along the road cry shame over it. What happened to young people’s respect for the elderly? They swap places, but again the bystanders criticise them: Look at how that old man makes the child trudge! Whatever they try next, nothing meets with approval. Will Andrej and Pico manage to push on, nevertheless?
