Storyline

A gently comic short film exploring children's misunderstandings on the subject of death with a delightfully uplifting ending. Grandma doesn't look ill - but she is, so Dad has to tell his children to be ready to say goodbye to her. Grandma makes it easier for the children by saying she will still be with them and will watch over them; even when she is gone. Lulu, the youngest child, is distraught when she hears her parents and the funeral directors talking about burying Grandma. All the children agree that they must help Grandma get to heaven and their first Internet search result for 'How to get to Heaven' is Heaven Hot Air Balloons... Written by Anonymous

A lovely film about one of the most delicate subjects. About love. And about childhood. All - so simple. Few words. The speech of grandma. The adults world. The precious Internet. And a decision. Each as part of an inspired short film about life and about the perspective about it of children. Result - a lovely work.
