Magic Journey to Africa (2010) Movie Script

How we do ever wonder
what's between us and universe?
I mean in the space,
between each of us and the stars?
Is it there?
Is it light?
Dust? Particles?
There are many things
in the space
and all together form
our world nature.
Sometimes, we need to find something
to help us discover the world,
between us and the stars
and I find Cabo.
I didn't know it,
he will take me to the Africa.
where he'll show me a
very different nature,
one of that can't be touch it,
nor seem but it also exist.
Seeing him in Barcelona,
was a beginning of my journey.
Sir, you want
refer the news?
Want you refer the news?
I know why you came here,
so, you better turn around
and walk away right now.
What's wrong, dad?
Why did you make him leave?
I feel very bad about it,
but this boys steal the phones
from restaurant tables.
I mean, he walks over, he covers
the phone with the newspaper
and then he asking for money.
He uses the other hand
underneath the newspaper
to steal the phone.
The boy is a thief. What he
does is not right at all.
Then why does he do it?
Because he needs money,
anything, stealing
Is the best way to get it.
-Why does he think,
is the best way?
-I don't know, Jana.
I'm sure someone told him.
He has to steal, so, he does it.
Who tells him to?
Someone who take advantage
of him, someone who tells him to steal.
But who, dad? Who tells him
to? -I don't know, Jana.
Look, here come the
pizzas. Let's eat now
and if we're finding
him later we'll ask him.
Want you refer the news?
Thief. Somebody stop
that thief.
You little rascal.
You see? He just stole
the man's mobile.
Why? Why
does he do that?
I don't know. But somebody
should be tell him,
he have to stop it or he's
getting in a big trouble.
I spent days and nights,
thinking about that boy's problems.
If he get in the trouble,
is a very serious thing.
Because he makes you sick,
nak definitely
not like yourself.
Must always worse someone
what you really like to be.
I wish I could help him,
but how could I.
I didn't know
anything about him.
Where was he?
What was he doing?
Where does he live?
And every time I
thought about him
and all those questions,
I felt so a pain in my heart.
It was that very night,
when a shiny butterfly
appear of nowhere,
flashing it's colored wings
around my bedroom.
There she was. litop
by intense mist of light.
What she'll doing
that with me?
Why have you come?
Because I know the
boy you looking for.
You don't have to worried
about him anymore.
He's OK.
Sometimes he has to do
the dangerous things
in order to survive,
but he's OK.
He's a good boy.
And how do you know?
-Because I see him
help and love the people.
-What do you mean?
That he worries about the
other children the same way
you worried about him.
So, don't worry. OK? I can go.
-Wait, wait, don't go yet.
I told what he need it,
what do you want?
Take me to him.
That's not possible.
Today it's impossible.
We would have to go back
to that day at the restaurant
and that's impossible.
But why?
Because there no roads
that's leads to the past.
There no seconds, minutes,
hours or days that can take you there.
Either you there or you not there,
nobody else can take you.
Not even fairies and
widow magic.
Where can I find him?
Where ever your desires and
imagination want to take you.
That's where you will
see him again.
Oh, come on. Can't
you talk normal.
What would you mean your
desires and your imagination
want to take you? I don't
know what you mean.
Where is that place?
I want it to see him
here and now. -OK. All right.
I need to see him.
Where is he? -OK.
I tell will you...
He is in the hospital.
-In the hospital?
Why? What's
wrong with him?
Do you really want to know?
-Yes. I want to help him.
Go to see him tomorrow
is that you want.
His very sick.
And listen to me, as much as
you want to be with him,
as much as you wish to
be at his side,
you have to remember,
that everyone has the own path
and nobody can change it.
I convince my
mother to take me.
I been asking everyone
about the pizza boy for weeks.
My parents knew how
much meant to me
to able a see him again.
Is it him? Do you think
it's him? -Yes. That's a boy.
Oh, excuse us. We didn't
realize you here and...
Are you his mother?
I'm the only person who
is taken charge of him.
My husband and I are the only people
here who's speak his language.
What's wrong with him?
Why he's in the hospital?
Living on the streets,
there's a lot of problems.
Don't you see,
he's very ill, poor thing.
At times, he have
very high temperature
and when he dreams he
says he wants to go back
to his grandparent's home,
to the country of his ancestors spirits,
the land of red sand, where
trees and animals they talk.
But all of this is
very far away.
Oh, this Gabo. Dreams
take him very far away.
I think he moved.
Is he awake?
-Can I tell him something?
Yes, I'm sure he would
like that very much.
Gabo, a girl has
come to see you.
Is that his name?
Yes, you didn't know?
That is his name.
Gabo means dream
in our language.
Hi. Can you hear me?
Do you want
to come with us?
What is he saying? I don't
understand what's he saying.
He said, my hearts
stands on the hill
and the heart of the
Bushman always goes back
to very came from,
to the land of the desert,
the secret land that
witness our birth.
Where the spirits of the humans
talks to those trees and animals.
Does Gabo comes from that
country, that desert? -Oh, yes.
They don't learn only to
live but to survive.
Oh, let me. Oh.
At times, the alarm
goes off from no reason,
for nothing. -I think,
we disturb him. We should be go.
Hello. Don't worry Gabo.
Here we are.
He's gonna be all right.
Let's see, what's
going on with you Gabo.
I'm sure it's nothing.
I don't wanna leave
him now, mom.
Oh, don't worry
but we have to go now.
We would like to come back.
-Please, come back tomorrow.
We'll come back,
on point or the other.
Let's go, Jana.
-Nurse, check the pulse again.
Looks very slow.
I'll make it curing. I'll
bring it to him. -Yes. Let's do that.
I'm sure he will
really like it.
What's his country like? I mean,
is the really country like that?
Can you imagine,
I could go visit it his mountains
and his desert. I could talk to
the trees, plants and animals.
Can you imagine that?
I didn't yet know, what design
an imagination capable of
but I'll soon going
to find out.
Bless you.
A flower?
Are you a desert flower?
Unfortunately, I'm now.
-Then you help me.
Help you? Help you do
what? -I'm doing research.
Very well then.
I'm happy to hear that.
What are you researching
if I may ask?
Why do you exist
in the place like this?
Why do I exist? -Yes,
why you're here?
We all exist from
the same reason,
to someone to come along and
water as every ones in a while.
It would be nice if someone
would take care of me.
Then, look up at the cloud,
over to water you.
Hey, cloud, what are
you doing up there?
Sunbathing? Can't you see that
is a flower in the desert here?
Come on.
Yes, here. Down here.
It worked.
This is such a nice rain.
Now I get it. Now we
know why we exist,
but look at me,
I haven't grown at all
or got in any prettier.
The rain is not use to me.
That's what you think.
Look at you from down here,
I saw your heart grow.
Really? -The effect
sounds immediate
but eventually you will
able to tell. -Thanks, flower.
I better get going,
before starts raining again.
Go on. Go on.
Shake a leg.
There's a huge
storm coming up
that will wash
everything away.
Well, good luck then.
I don't need any luck.
I just need a little
bit of moisture.
Moisture. I said
You know,
our hearts grows.
It's a muscle a pumps our
blood keep it flowing inside us,
to until it's stops one
day. You stop thinking, listening,
singing and laughing.
You will be permanently
sick and unable
to use our imagination and
nobody should be luck of imagination.
What's going on?
The light is switch it
on. How come?
I'm here. I'm home.
Yes, I'm back home.
What I was
doing in Africa?
A dream.
Gabo took me.
Why is the light on?
-I don't know.
Oh, come on, Jenna.
Always the same old story.
You not going to said
turn up by magic, are you?
I didn't turn on.
-Come on. Go to sleep.
I'm not sleepy.
I let you draw for a little
while to until you finished.
Is that for Gabo? -Yes, it's him
riding his bike in his country.
Well, at that time being,
he still in the hospital,
to until he's not recovers
but I'm sure when he will feels better
he will be able to ride
back he ever wants to.
You would really like
to visit his country?
Yes and I
will visit it. -Well,
remember what that lady said,
we have to realize
that's very very far away.
Will you know how to get
there? -You can fly there.
You can fly anywhere.
-Really? Who told you so?
A fairy told me.
-Of course.
Do your fairy have
a travel agency?
Do you think he will like it?
It's not finished yet.
It's a very nice drawing.
All right then. Well, I will
leave the light for a while
to until you finished
and tomorrow morning
I'll go to the hospital to
see how is he feeling
and if is he better we can
go together in the afternoon
you can hunt him,
you can draw him personally. OK?
Excuse me,
I wanted to see the
boy that my daughter...
Was he discharged?
You are the mother of the girl
who visited him yesterday.
Yes, I am.
-I'm glad to see you.
He left this note
for your daughter.
Thanks for wanted
to be my friend.
I would love to
see you again
but I'm going back to
the place, where I was born.
Over there, people
talk to the spirits
and turning to the trees
and trees have branches,
like the legs and arms
of the person.
Leaves, like the hair
of the person.
Roots, like the
feelings of the person.
And the heart, like the
heart of the person.
If some day you want to
find me, talk to the tree.
It will tell you,
where I am. Gabo.
I'm sure, he's on the most
beautiful place in the world.
Look. There was
this for you.
We are right here.
Call us if you need anything,
want us to keep
you company.
I don't want my
heart stop beating
and also I don't
stop dreaming
and the same thing
would happened to you.
And what's worse?
Keep go run the world,
there ever finding
anybody. Not a flower,
not a friend, not even
a magical stone.
So, now the you know
what would happened,
if you didn't have a heart, try to
listen to every time is siseling pretty.
No matter where
you are,
even when you a very far
in your dreams.
He's here. He wants
me to follow him
and show me his world.
Don't touch that.
Did you do it?
What is it?
Don't you see, I made a mandala
with the sands of the desert.
A mandala? What is
that mean?
I draw my inner world.
All of us, have inner
world to draw.
It takes a lot of
practice and ability.
Quality is not everyone
has. I like the fact
you been able
to appreciate.
Other kids like you,
they will run right on by.
Have been other
kids through here?
You haven't seen bushman
boy riding a bike?
A boy riding a bike?
That is absurd.
Who wants to ride
a bike in the desert?
Oh, well. So,
you haven't seen him.
No, but if he's around,
I would know.
I'm the one who
know best everything
it happens around here.
-Then I'm very lucky to found you.
Yes, you are very lucky
to found me.
You are the first human being
who has the privilege
to appreciating my
fantastic work of art.
I think, you are the
first my cat I met,
since I arrived in Africa.
-Well, you didn't have to come
all this way for that. They are
smart cats all over the world, cutie.
What I mean is, I never
met someone who can talk
to me about his mandala. -Look,
some animals has been in contact
with certain kinds of humans for
so long, they become very rude.
What do you mean? It's impossible
to have rude animals here.
Go talk to some
monkey I know
and see it yourself.
Hello. I'd like
to talk to you.
I know you're
very busy but...
Well, why no one taking
any notice of me?
You were right. They
aren't so nice I expected.
All I wanted to do,
is to introduce myself
and ask them for the help
of my desert experimentation.
You want the help
from monkeys?
You got to be kidding?
Looks sweaty, here
everyone looks out for themselves.
What have you come here for,
besides looking a boy on the bike?
I been told, that in Africa have all
kind of trees, plants and animals,
that can't be find
anywhere else on the world
and they have a lot of
experience in surviving
and that I'm really interesting,
because I'm looking for the answers
to my questions.
-Oh, well, I know, I know.
Another little human looking
for answers to her questions.
When you will gonna grow up?
-I'm sure the boy I'm looking for
has come all this way,
looking for the same answers
and questions I have.
That's why I have
to see him. -What a disaster.
You humans are the plaque.
Can't you just stay in your own world?
Don't tell me you came to
Africa all by yourself. -No.
I haven't come alone.
My lucky wing horses
come along with me.
Are you pulling my leg
or you just nuts?
That's a stuffed animal.
This is Africa,
not Disney Land.
Now you'll see.
He's inner world now.
It doesn't have any light.
It was fake.
Will ask any other
animal then.
I'm sure they will be able
to tell us how and why they exist
in such a difficult place is this.
The animals of Africa,
can be many help for hints
but you can't trust
all of them.
They are animals, of all different
colors, sizes and personalities
but they all have one thing
comment, their instinct.
Silly zebra.
Oh, and I can't
forget about the lion,
a furiousness animal, who very
law eye lashes and head.
If you get close to hungry lion,
will surly scratch you.
So, before you get close,
you should make sure he's happy
and his only happy
if he eating well.
Don't make any noise
or a lion going to hear us.
It's like people,
when they eat and drink well,
they become friendly.
In fact, the lions have the same
feelings we do. The only things
is a dare a lions, only a people.
What's wrong with you, lion?
Don't you feel well?
No, I don't.
Nobody can't understand
how I feel, even less a human being.
Watch on the big one.
Kill the big one.
I wounded it.
-Kill it. Kill it. Kill him.
There's one.
We got it.
I know what's wrong with you.
How is that?
Do you...
Do you really know?
Think about the most delicious
thing you always wanted to eat
but can't never try. See how
happy that makes you feel?
I know what you mean.
Thanks, little human.
I feel better now.
Come on. Let's see,
what daddy will eat today.
The lion,
my lion from Namibia,
must of really loved to
every tuf missing so much.
I'm just look of that.
I'm the king of animals
and instead of him helping
me with my questions,
I had to help him
with my answers.
What if I went to
look for the lioness?
He miss it so much.
-You can't talk to someone,
Why not? Where is
the lioness? -I don't know.
The lion must know.
Well, I need to talk to
somebody who can explains
more things to me. I'm still
haven't find what I looking for
since I begin my trip.
-Who do you want to talk now?
Now I want to
talk to boy like me,
who can understand,
what I'm looking for.
I want him to be very friendly,
talkative, smart boy,
who always want to
talk and play with me.
I want him to
talk to animals
and knows how to catch
frogs and... -Hey, hold on.
Wait a minute, Jenna.
You can't force a boy,
who already existing in real world,
to be someone he isn't.
You can't just decide
what's going to be like.
I can't why not?
-Because all children,
each and every one
of them, are different.
There the way they are
and only they can decide
what they want to be like.
I'll introduce you to a boy,
who is the way he is and lives
in the village where the sun sets.
You are a spirit,
aren't you?
Did the fire spirits sent you?
-I don't know those spirits.
Everybody knows them.
They are been the
flames of secret fire
and stay with
us for few days
to until get tired
and go back home.
And what did they do?
They come to talk.
You told them your problems
and they advise you
how to sold them.
And do they always
find the solution? -Almost always,
but they are complain because
pay not enough attention to them.
Are you sure you aren't a spirit?
-I'm not a spirit.
Oh, you aren't.
Then who are you?
-Jenna and you?
I'm Mel.
And if you aren't a spirit,
how did you get here?
I fly my horse.
-You flew?
Horses don't have wings.
This is my lucky wing horse.
Are you kidding me?
Does this thing fly?
It is a spirit.
Why does it is company you?
Why he does have that shape?
Because this way can
easily come with me
or might travel
around the world.
Do you have any marbles?
No, I don't have any marbles.
Card collections?
No, I don't have
any card collections.
Do you know how
to catch frogs?
They aren't any
frogs around here.
Then I guess, you have
any interesting story to tell?
What you want to know?
Why do you live here?
In the place like this?
Where your things?
My ancestors
always lived here
and they never
missed a single thing.
Come with me.
I'll let introduce you
to my friend.
Tonight would go
to the Spirit of the fire.
The fireplace know a lot of
stories and they will help you
if you will
have a problem.
The secret fire gives an answers
to prayers and wishes.
It doesn't matter who you are
and where you come from.
You just have to
stay at the fire
and lets yourself to
carried away by the flames
and fived your
heart is blamed.
Remember Jenna, in order to
see and talk to the spirits,
you have to look it the fire and
feel that your heart is burning.
I felt hypnotized.
A little piece of me, my heart,
felt the flames intense hit,
for the rest of my
body stay cold
and seems further
and further away.
Like having being awoke,
the fire spirit came to talk to me.
The sky has blessed us.
A white spirit and the winged horse,
who came from very far away,
are here in our village.
Tell me, white spirit, what are
you seeking amongst the desert people?
I want to go
see the world.
Surviving is
always possible.
I want to visit the country
dreams, imagination and magic.
It is a secret country.
Only a few very special
people can entered.
But I need to go there.
There is a lost boy
who I believe when
country to find refugee.
In this secret land is
not easy to find.
It is very far from the
real world of humans.
It is far beyond what
you can see and touch.
What do you mean?
-The world of greens is made about
everything we can't see,
neither touch nor buy.
You can only get there
with good feelings.
But how can I get there?
I need to get there.
Only by talking to the trees
you will be able to find a way.
Listen carefully
to this story.
Two giant trees grows side
by side on the mountain
they get very cold
and winter time.
So cold, that the birds didn't
even dare to leave their nests
because they fear that
their wings will freeze.
Like the birds, the trees
also felt the cold,
but only at the tips
at the branches
because they felt a great
worm inside of them
they won't they shared
through their roots.
For years, the two trees
kept each other warm.
Every spring, when winter
ended the branches would grown
and sprout new
healthy leaves.
The branches and the
leaves of one tree
would touch the other and they
embraced and kissed each other.
Both trees were very
happy and in love.
But one day, one of the trees
began the notice the cold
of winter inside of it.
and when spring come around
it's branches didn't grow
and it's leaves
didn't sprout
and the following year
was even worse.
The healthy tree sent
vitamins through his roots
but they were less
and less effective
and the sick tree kept
getting dryer and dryer
until the fifth winter when
it dried up completely.
The healthy tree
which had been wicked
by sending all those
vitamins to the tree at loved
also began to
wither and dry.
Eventually, neither of the two
trees had a spark of life left
and what remained of their tracks
laid of mangold together
in the pile of the ground.
But then, one day in the
middle of that very hip,
a little news trees sprout it.
In a few years, grow
to be tall and strong,
healthy and even to
resist the hit of the summer time
and the cold
of the winter time.
Even now,
a thousand years later,
continues to grow.
This millennium tree is the
secret tree of the ancestors
it will show you the way you
have to follow from now on.
Wake up, Jenna.
Wake up.
Is there a big secret
tree of the ancestors?
The answers is tree?
Did you talk to the Fas Burt?
Yes but didn't stop moving
and... -That's great.
The Fas Burt has
talk to you.
It's says anything about me?
Did it give you a message for me?
Is it happy with me? -No. It
didn't say anything about you
really or anybody else. Told me
a sad story about two trees
but shock to the die.
-I already know that story.
It's the tail of our
ancestor's tree
and the Fas Burt is very talkative
instead of taking care of the problems,
it's tells that story. And
is not that I don't like it
but should be pay attention
what you ask of it.
Well, it seem very
interesting to me
and I want to follow it advice.
It tell me way to
the world I looking for.
OK. Let's do then.
I notify eventually.
I'll take you there and
that's it. Pick the bag.
Come on, let's go.
Come on.
Jana, come on.
Where is your tree?
-Look, do this like me.
It's up there in the sky,
drawn yellow and blue stars.
I don't see any yellow
and green stars?
What do you mean,
you don't see there?
The sky is full of them. You must
not be looking closely enough.
Look directly to the
middle of the universe
and you will see the
ancestor's tree.
I see it. I see it,
there it is.
You see,
how really is this?
Is the best tree in the
universe. -I told you,
you will be able to see it. -Depending
how you hold the binoculars.
You can see the tree
straight, sideways
or upside down. How luck you
are to have a tree like that?
Is not manul my people.
Is belong to you as well.
So, why you given
it to me?
Is not mine, but hey,
if you wanted so much,
I give it to you. Look, I talk
to you, whenever you want.
Thanks, Mel.
Look, look! A leopard
is climbing up on the tree.
It's true. What's it
doing up there?
I bet he climb up there every night
to watch and hunt the prey.
I'm sure, it's been spent
hours up there.
Are you sure? -Sure.
Leopards love to climb on trees,
to touch the sky and watch
everything to could been seen.
Maybe the leopard is the
one to point out the post
what I looking for.
We might have to wait hours
to see it come down.
Why don't you sleep a little
while? I'll keep watching
the tree in the way
thoughts to climb down.
Thanks, Mel.
I'm really sleepy.
Wake up, Jana. Wake up.
Stars falls from the sky.
Come on, let's go
check it out.
Look, there.
Look, there.
Look at that.
Look at that.
Look it that one
over there.
Oh, yeah.
Who is he? -Maybe is one of
the guardian of the stories.
The guardian of the stories?
They say, they live in
the country of dreams,
magic, imagination
and magical creatures.
The secret land I'm looking
for. -The tree of souls.
Is been a long time since the last
rain this story from the sky.
You did this, didn't you?
-She did.
She ask the highest priest
to tell her story
and he told her this one.
I'm just helping her.
This story is been a long time
without the sky resend in it.
You must be the reason,
why the sky might rain again
after such a long time.
Magical stories rain only when a
child enters into theirs magic
and wants that
magic to come true.
Now let's see,
what brought you here?
Well, I knew I started out but now,
I don't think I know any more.
Think of your home,
think of your world.
What are your feeling, just
before left on your journey?
I was drawing a boy.
-You're looking for a boy? -Yes.
He gave me this
magical stone.
I have been told I can find
him where everyone knows
how to exist in the country
of imagination, magic...
And you think, you'll find
him easily? Why is that?
I don't know. A dream
brought me here and...
A dream? Well, well,
a dream.
We all live on dreams
but very few of us can
get in and out of them
to live among dreams.
You must be one of
the very fortunate few.
Maybe this will help
you find what you need
to enter the land of dreams,
imagination and magic.
It's yours little human girl.
Take it and read it as
many times as you wish.
You will discovered a
great many things in it.
I knew it. I told you.
He's the guardian of stories.
Now we know each other.
I wish you lot of luck
and may be dreams with you.
I have to hurry,
the crows are already here.
What do they want? -They come
from the world of nightmares.
They want to see all those
stories fall down from the sky,
so nobody can read them. I have
to come to take the stories
to my country so they can
be save. -There's a lot of them.
They come from all over.
When children have
horrible nightmares
this nightmares turning into
crows. They lived as long
as the nightmares last.
And their only mission
is to capture and destroy
the stories creating by dreams,
imaginations and magical creatures.
Hurry! Take the story
with you and protect it.
Don't let it fallen to their claws.
Take that. Take it with you.
I'll distract them.
-We should go. -We must go.
Go, go, Jana.
Be careful.
They are coming.
-Go, go. Go, Jana.
Hurry! Come on.
Come on.
Water. It's deep.
Do you think we
tricked them? -Maybe.
Let's try rest here,
hidden from the crows.
A crow. A crow
behind us.
Leave us alone.
They won't find us here.
-Are you sure?
Yes, I'm sure. They
haven't followed us here.
You know, I haven't so
running since I met you.
I know. Everyone
tells me that,
but you are save with me.
No ones run as much
and fastest I do. My parents
think I'll become a famous athlete.
And you want to become
a famous athlete?
Of course. I hope I'll win a lot of
medals on the Olympic games.
Why do you want
win so many medals?
Well, what do you think?
To have my picture
taken with them,
to being in the newspapers.
I guess, like everyone else does.
-A medal doesn't mean very much
and years later your
friends are remember you.
Do you think,
we are in the story?
Should be open it?
-Yes, let's see how they
drown our tree.
Let's touch it.
The moment we touched it,
Mel and I lost
site of the world.
This time the dream took
us even further away.
Don't be afraid. Don't
be afraid. It's very gentle.
He won't hurt you.
How did you get here?
We are reading
and suddenly...
We don't know.
-We are reading a book
the fell from the sky.
Old man, who wasn't a man,
who was an owl,
gave to us.
A guardian of stories? -Yes.
He was a guardian of stories.
He didn't suppose to
do that. This can cost us
a great trouble.
-What trouble?
Whenever new
kids get here, like you,
they don't want to leave.
They insist on seji.
This is not they
are world.
You two, will have to go
to your real world.
Why did you say real?
We are already in real world.
That is up to you. Each one
of us must choose
this or real world.
-Is this your real world?
This is my world
but it isn't real.
This is the land of dreams,
magic and magical creatures.
What creatures do
you mean? -All of them,
including me and my elephant.
-What about us? It is our world as well?
It could be... but no,
no, no. It can't be.
Why not? How do
you know it can't be?
I know, because something tells
me just passing through.
You won't stay.
-And if we want it to stay?
Oh, no. Not again.
Excuse my elephant,
he gets upset,
because every time
does a new come here
we have the same
discussions for hours.
Do you know what?
Seems all this arguments
won't settle anything.
Let's get moving
and you'll see for yourself.
The breezing smell of the
sea were a good present.
I was happy having rich the
new world made by dreams.
It was amazing.
And the best thing of all, we are
traveling on the back of Harry,
the giant elephant.
Let's go, Harry.
I saw, you said, this is
the country of dreams,
magic and magical
creatures but I don't see
that different from others.
What's special about it?
What's special about it?
This is where we keep all the stories
humans create with
their imagination.
All those stories
the rain from the sky
and the owls keep away
from the crow's claws.
How do you keep them?
-Who keeps them? -You ask a lot
of questions before bed?
You will see, everything in cause.
Hold on tight now.
Harry, the elephant, to cost
as his city for live old temples.
We were told, that an
elephants live together,
dedicated to protect him, reading
and memorizing stories.
This are the copies of the
books, saved by the owls.
Owls. -Yes, that's the guardians
of stories. -Guys, let's them work.
Let's go back.
The owls had rescue a lots
of copies of my story
and all of the children were
absorb and reading it.
Where do they come from?
It did not seen they live there.
There have no tables, chairs,
woo drops, beds or televisions.
It didn't matter,
they had a single mission,
to read the stories to the elephants,
so, they could memorize them
and on this way could save
all the memories of mankind.
It's the oldest
of them all.
This one keeps more stories.
-How old is it?
How old? We don't have ages
here. Nobody counts the years.
Is it thinking?
When is it thinking can
understand any human languages
and then memorizes
everything is it told.
But's it not thinking.
It's looking at as.
Elephants always
think with one eye open,
so, us to no one remember,
who telling them the story.
Can I tell it the story?
-Yes, he loves good stories
but only one condition.
-OK, what condition?
Once you'll told to elephant
the story, you and Mel
will have to go back to
your world. -But why?
We don't want to go back.
-No, we don't want to go back.
You promised me.
What's story can I tell it?
Tell it about your journey.
-If I tell it,
how I meets what I looking for?
-What's you looking for?
A boy, I met him in
my world, in Barcelona.
He showed me the
pass to his country.
Tell that to the elephant.
If it seen that boy
in one of the stories that
it keeps in its memory,
he will let you know.
I know a boy who is
very ill. He needs help.
He doesn't have
a home or any food
and he has to go to the
country of spirits,
there they talk with
trees and animals. I want
to help him. That's way
I'm looking for him.
I had seen him many
times in my dreams.
He sees me, ways he lives
but he lived stones away from me.
I know why he does that.
He wants me to meet him
in a special place. Maybe
this is the place.
Maybe you know him. Maybe
he lives in one of the stories
you keep in the memory.
Elephant, tell me,
where I can find him.
Where I can find him?
The elephants in the
country stories disappeared
and I found myself alone back in...
I didn't know where I was.
What about Mel? Did he
going back to his village?
What about me?
I wasn't back at home.
Where I had
ended up this time?
Tom! Jenny! That's
enough now.
You already say
good morning.
I'm Galla.
Who are you?
My name is Jana. -Jana?
I was expecting you.
Who me? But we even
don't know each other.
Someone gave me a
magical stone for you.
A stone for me? Who?
-A bushman boy,
who was riding on a bicycle.
-Does he know I looking for him?
Do you know him? Did he
say anything about me?
Look, is this a boy?
Yes. Yes, that's him.
He looks like the one
that shoot the
arrow at me.
He left some words saying,
for the girl who are becoming,
for you.
And this shiny stone.
Let's see. It's like the
other one he leaves me,
where ever he goes. -Why
does he leave you his stones?
I don't know but he must have
a good reason for doing it,
don't you think?
He knows I looking for him.
I came from very far away
to find him. -How did
you get here?
Where do you come from?
-My home is far away,
on the other side of the world.
One day, I set out on a trip to Africa
and when I woke up and
opened my eyes I found out
that I ended in desert. -Really?
Did you come to see our desert?
Yes. I'm adventures
and travels a world over.
Which world do you
looking for? -You know,
the world. The world in general.
-Look here. We have one.
Let me show you.
I realized, that made a
happy to show me her desert.
She pointed to a place where
Namib desert was written
island it in capitals letters.
I quickly realized, that she
wanted to share her country
and her things with me.
The world is so beautiful,
don't you think?
But this is a fake one.
-No, it's real. Look,
we are right here. Can't you see
the shadow of my finger above us?
Gee. Is that the shadow
of your finger? -Yes.
I move my finger and
the shadow moves too.
Shadows are magical but
I'm very familiar with them.
I show and I hide
my shadows where ever
and whenever I want and I always
know, where they going to show up
and where they going to hide.
-How do you do that?
Can I do it too?
-Give it a try.
I'm here. I have a new load.
Jenna, we have a new flowers.
-What? What do you mean?
New flowers for our garden.
-Who brought them?
My mother. Come.
She goes out every day,
looking all over for the sick plants.
She rescues them and
brings them to our garden,
to replant them and cure them.
First stay with us and
live happily for many years.
Oh, hey. How
are you doing?
What are you doing up there?
-Just talking about the world.
Oh, great. That's
a good subject
but don't take too long.
It's just an insignificant
marble in the
middle of the space.
Oh, a new friend
from school?
Jana showing me how to
make shadows over the world.
And? -She comes
from the desert.
Oh, really?
Oh, I can see that.
In that case, Jana,
must be very thirsty
and hungry. So, I gonna
make you a nice meal.
Don't be too long.
And later you can help me
to transplant this
plants, hm? -Yes, mam.
-I'll be right here.
Oh, this is so dry.
Do you like our hospital?
-Yes. I like it a lot.
I never seen one before.
I'm going to
take a picture.
This site and all those plants
had been save from certain death,
make me really happy.
Now that a new the deserts
and savannah
of Africa look like,
I knew how difficult
it was to survive.
My desert flower.
Thanks to my little cloud,
it was able to survive
and it's been lucky to
rescue them to the hospital.
It will be able to recover.
Oh, Jana.
It's disappeared.
Game of shadows
on the planet,
doesn't work anymore.
-Very normal shadows.
Do you wants to keep
them playing later?
I would like to very much
but you will live now.
-But how? How do you know?
Because you came here
with the winged horse.
You are right.
I could feel the bright
light of our growing hots
and then I thought I was
riding to the country
of dreams on my
winged horse.
As you can see,
the winged horse takes me
from one place to another.
It's average ovak bin,
but it doesn't let me spend
much time in the
places that I like.
But the fairy say,
life every moment is different
and tomorrow would
never be the same.
My horse follows
the orders of the fairy,
who gave it its magical
ability to transform.
Everybody should have
the own winged horse.
I have Cabo also as magical
animals to protecting him.
Where is Cabo?
Is he really here?
Among this valleys,
rivers and savannas?
This stone is the last
one he's going to leave me.
I have to continue
with my journey,
just like all you will do,
if you are on my place.
In fact, all of you would have
own journeys to make.
To pick up your own stones.
And your fairies,
they will always turn up
when you feel lonely
but don't expect them
to answers all yours
questions, especially
the important ones.
They'll tell you to ask,
whoever had the answers
and not the person
who doesn't have it.
Like one day,
I asked the fairy,
why do we exist?
She said, that is very
interesting question,
can be answered only by
those, who really really
know how to exist. As she
said in her own words:
"Life it's not easy
for a lots of people."
I can't stop asking
myself, why it isn't easy.
What's difficult
about living?
Why the people make it
so complicate it?
One day, I couldn't
stand it any longer
and have to ask:
"Who knows how to exist?"
Those who survive.
-And who survives?
Some people,
some animals,
some trees and plants
face a lot of difficulties
and in spite of that
they keep on living.
And how do they do it?
They keep their eyes wide
open to see beautiful things
and there is many beautiful
things is wide as the world.
I want to see a lot of them.
Where can I find them?
Oh, on many places.
You don't have
to go very far.
Oh, though maybe there is a
place that has more beautiful
things than others.
In a desert.
In the African's desert.
There you'll find everything
you need to know
and if you ever go there
and find a magical stones
on the road, don't ever
forget to pick them up.
Then someday,
very soon,
I'll go to Africa. Yes,
I'm sure I'll to go to Africa.
The fairy transformed
my stuffed horse
into a magical flying horse
and the journey began.
Thats how I ended
up going to Africa.
To explore the desert
and touch the tree of stars
in the country of dreams,
imagination and magical creatures.
And so, my journey
has just began.
And here I am. Taking
pictures and writing letters
to my parents and friends.
Telling them about my research.
Today I received the
letter from my parents.
It's says:
"Hello Jana.
How yours
journey going?
Here we are keeping a
breast of all your news.
Today, we went
to the beach
and walk slowly. I found the
very special small stone,
in the shape of
a heart, in the sand.
You'll never believe it.
It's a very shine stone,
inside the level pouch.
Seems a piece of the star.
I'm sure you like to
have it. So, I'll keep it,
it is world treasure,
until you come back.
Was this really the last magical
stone that Cabo left for me?
I don't know.
I would never know.
But I feel that his world,
between him and the stars,
is also mine now.
I'm sure that
where ever he is,
today he sleeping tight,
knowing that somebody
in the universe
lights a candle,
to watch over his dreams.
