An enchanting tale about an ordinary family, whose everyday life is brightened up and enhanced by dreams. The daughter, Sirli, goes to visit a cloud ballerina, while the son, Siim, is a good wizard in a little world located under his writing desk. The mother occasionally runs away to a majestic castle, where she is treated as royalty. In his dreams, the father of the family is the famous boxer “Ironfist”, as well as the ice-hockey player and figure skater “Silver Heels”. The rather eccentric apartment-building caretaker dreams of becoming the Prince of the Waters, and his dream comes true. Only the writer Sheep doesn’t dream, and for this reason, he grows hardened and bitter. His life is changed when he re-encounters a childhood dream: a little hedgehog, which once more finds a home under Sheep’s bed. The author deletes from his computer all the bleak tales he has been working on, and starts to write a children’s book called “The Adventures of the Jolly Baby Hedgehog”.
