Through a wonderful meeting with a young girl, the all too grey world of an old man with a great grief is bit by bit filled with color again.

"Saperlipopette is a heart-warming, wordless show in which young and old influence each other in a sparkling way."

An old man remains quiet.
In his room.
In his mind.
He lives out his days in black and white and grey.
He breathes softly.
He doesn’t say a word.
The doors locked.
The shutters down.
His heart bolted.
And no plans, no dreams!
Because one never knows what’s coming tomorrow.

A girl is at his front door.
Just like that, all of a sudden.
She’s almost exploding.
Playful and crazy and carefree.
Wild too!
Full of color and sparkles of stardust.

A barrel full of dreams, ready to burst.
There is only tomorrow.

She takes him by the hand.
To where imagination
makes the loss lighter.
