The night falls on the village. The air is cool. Fireplaces free their smokes. Home sweet home... Funny rumours argue not far from the village. The children, percieve from their windows a low bright halo coming from the nearby forest. The sound comes from the forest. Wrapped up in their hottest clothes, the children leave, for exploration. What are we going to discover in this forest?
