- a pixi opera for kids from 8-13

In this story we are meeting the girl Maria, when she wakes up in the morning and until she reaches her school on an apparently ordinary cold day in January. But the story also tells us about her dreams and daydreams, and this morning's dramatic incidences on her way to school. She is almost hit by a car, she is having a big disagreement with her best friend Marlene, who thinks Maria is very odd because of her constant singing. Maria also meets a very strange road worker, who helps her and shows her the way to an other world. Here Maria meets something strange...is it an angel...or maybe herself...or?
