“Once Upon”

Once Upon is a performance or video of very small things or animals. A kind of an Estonian fairy tale that puts an emphasis on time, extended duration, stating the obvious and all the missing elements in a narrative.

They say folks that can manage big things never can manage little ones.
A proper fairy tale told by a narrating princess. 
A handheld dinosaur speaks prophetic wisdom. 
A mesmerizing adventure video uncovers ancient truths. You’ll see it all in: Once upon.
PS: including special appearance cat, dog and bird in ABSOLUTE DARKNESS!!!
