The main character – a rabbit from the famous Esterházy dynasty from Vienna – is ordered by the family patriarch to go to Berlin to look for a wife: a dream partner, an inhabitant of the surroundings of the famous Berlin Wall. After a long search he finds Mimi and goes to Rabbit Heaven, an area between East and West Berlin. But in 1989, the Wall is destroyed…

A classic animation in plasticine technique.
