Synopsis

BEHIND THE MIRROR
This fairy comedy tells the fantastic daydream of Ljuba, sitting in a bizarre school world made of cardboard and struggling herself through a scary reality dominated by technology and progress only. All the sudden the glorious singing angel Klarina appears and inspires her music teacher Engelbert to compose a master piece of music. Engelbert is now forced to withstand an incredible trip through Heaven and Hell and to finally face the truth about the world behind the mirror.
