Synopsis
Little Tobi, a passionate magician, is suffering from the absence of his mother who is in hospital. His parents have told him little about his mother’s disease: all he knows is that she is ill and all he sees is that she has lost her hair. When Tobi succeeds in ‘repairing’ the short hair of his friends Mia’s favorite doll with a spell, Tobi starts believing in real magic and gives all his power to bring his mother back home. And slowly, confidence is replacing his sadness.
