Watch the animation on Vimeo:

In the late night hour a troubadour called Matt is sitting on the edge of the Moon. He is so fascinated by the view beneath him that he decides to descent to the Earth on a rope ladder. When he reaches the Earth’s surface, he finds himself in the middle of a small village. All of the inhabitants of the village are sleeping, not a sound to be heard.
Matt sits on the grass in front one of the houses and starts playing on his lute. One by one the lights on the houses in background begin to turn on. Then suddenly the troubadour startles by the sound of a firing gun nearby. He looks around again but this time he sees a person with a gun running towards him. Matt jumps in fear and starts running. The person with the gun is a short-tempered peasant /called Hans/ that is annoyed by Matt’s playing and decides to revive the silence.
Follows an exhausting chase. The characters are passing through various of landmarks. At the end of the chase both of them run towards the edge of a cliff. At the last moment Matt jumps from the edge and manages to hold on to the edge of the moon. Hans falls into the sea beyond the cliff. Matt decides to help him and descents the ladder from the moon. Hans is saved, and now he is sitting on the edge of the Moon with Matt. There Hans feels helpless and has no other choice but to listen to his playing.
