In a faraway land where the rain never stops, six-year-old Kyna spends her days playing carelessly under the protective “umbrella-beard” of her father, Din.

När jag blir stor

The Kite

Summer is coming to an end, the fruit is growing ripe on the trees. Grandpa gives his grandson a kite. As the boy is tossed around in the air, Grandpa catches him.
