This is a story about the eternal miracle of life and death. The unfortunate death of a wild hare turns into a remarkable experience for children who find his body and bury it in a sand box. Now buried, the hare’s life fades away and dozens of magical creatures that lived inside him leave his body in search of a new home. The hare’s life ends by merging with nature but it is reborn in the plants and animals around it. This fairy-tale encourages us to think about what death is.
