Malle isn't very happy. The island he lives on is dull and crazy Joran and his friends bully him. They want him to count waves and report when something has washed ashore. Just few things keep Malle going: beautiful Sonne and the myths about Anderland (Otherland), a paradise across the sea. One day Bran washes ashore. He is from Anderland and tells the most wonderful stories about it. There are no diseases, the women are beautiful and there is an abundance of tasty food. Malle follows Bran blindly, especially after Bran tells he is one of those special persons who have the privilege to live in Anderland. Written by
