A poetic puppet miniature Goodbye does not bring answers. Through a child's perspective, it gently lulls us into a story that subtly shows us that death is a natural part of life. It was inspired by one of the most award-winning and best-selling picture books by Swedish writer Ulf Nilsson. Published under the original title Adjö, Herr Muffin in 2002, this popular picture book received the Swedish August Prize for the best children's literature that same year. It is a touching story about passing and parting, and at the same time a story about life, when we allow ourselves to go to the end of the world.
