Outline

A wild rabbit runs into a bus and passes away. Two children witness the event. They get off the bus to take the rabbit’s body home and bury it in the sandbox in the backyard. Later, the sandbox is surrounded by dozens of magical creatures. As they eventually unite with flowers and trees, the rabbit merge with the nature. This fairy-tale for children depicts the eternal miracle of life and death.
