Teah / Tea (2006)

87min / fiction feature, Feature Film

Martin is a ten-year-old boy and on the day of his birthday strange things begin to happen in the ancient forest. Two unusual strangers move into the forest; a girl Teah and her mother. However, their ominous presence announces a much greater disaster: tension can be felt in the forest, trees become anxious, even the old chestnut, Martin�s friend, looks worried. Signs appear on the trees. Is it possible that they are about to cut all the ancient trees, that offered shelter to elfs, just in order to build a new road? Martin urgently needs a real friend. A friend of flesh and blood that would help him save the forest. Fiction and reality are inseparable in the forest. In order to prevent the very old magic, Martin has to confront with the real world first. On his way he will become aware of something unusual: the magic does not have its habitat in the forest. It lives in people�s hearts.
