Nothing seems to be enough in a world caught between Heaven and the underworld – neither money, nor food, neither sun, nor rain, not even children. When the Earth starts falling ill and God is evermore tired, a simple peasant manages to travel beyond the horizon and back again, restoring the fragile balance. Some highly unusual and quite unfortunate events are the reason why Stan, also called Bolovan (The Boulder), started on the road to the other realm, led by a beast who is always ready for a feast. None of his monster brothers that are waiting unbothered underground are actually polite, but they evoke sympathy and they like to sing beautifully. The fairytale starts with once upon a time lika a favourite story of mine. And when the music stops ringing in your head, there will be no monsters at the playground, at school, or under your bed.
