A cockroach is sleeping peacefully on a leaf in the brushwood. By interference of a curious hand, our friend ends up in the water.
The cockroach wants to get back to his leaf, but he is surrounded by dangers. By sacrificing his antennae and legs one by one he remains in control of the situation and after an intense journey across the sea and through the air, he manages to get back on dry land. Miraculously, all his legs and antennae have washed ashore.
With all his limbs back on his body, he lies down on a leaf to gaze at the stars until he, exhausted from his adventure, falls asleep.
Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film,
dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution,
og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med.
Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution,
foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
