Emil plays with his rabbit every day. His rabbit is cute, clever and good at jumping. But the rabbit is also old, and one morning it is dead. Emil's mother does everything she can to cheer up Emil. But it is not easy to be happy, when you are sad. This is a short film about joy and sorrow, and the importance of taking feelings seriously.
