An in­quis­i­tive boy fol­lows a trail of pa­per clues into a shad­owy build­ing in a word­less early-morn­ing ad­ven­ture full of friend­ship, sur­prises, and the dawn­ing of a new day. Beau­ti­fully lay­ered wa­ter­color paint­ings cap­ture the mys­tery and nos­tal­gia of Eastern Eu­ro­pean streets and rooftops. Hid­den gems abound in the de­tails as a cu­ri­ous cat and play­ful mice lead the way. Light and shadow sur­round the boy as he moves bravely for­ward with won­der.
