To the Wonder

Childhood – Play/Adventure – Fears
Something terrible is happening in the life of a child, and they are afraid that everything as they know it will change. But they’ve heard a story about the rainbow, saying that if they can find the end of it, they are granted one wish that will come true. They decide that they will leave home for a journey through the woods, mountains and lakes, searching for the rainbow in order to make everything as it was before. On their way, they meet other children who are looking for the same thing, and they decide to travel together. They play, explore and sleep together, and they strive to overcome the challenges they meet along their way. They encounter creatures helping them, but all fear that they will see the dangerous Troglodyte, whom they’ve heard is hiding in the shadows …

If you can find the end of the rainbow, legend has it that you can make a wish. A group of children sets out on a journey to find the rainbow: They all have something in their lives that is troubling them, and they hope finding the end of the rainbow will help them overcome their difficulties – but the road is long and full of danger.
If you can find the end of the rainbow, legend has it that you can make a wish. This legend was the reason a group of children set out to find the rainbow. They were all facing something dreadful in their life, and they hope to find the rainbow’s end to overcome the difficulties. But the road to the rainbow is long and full of challenges.
