SYNOPSIS
Ten-year-old Eden feels forgotten by and invisible to her parents, who often quarrel or are busy with other things. To escape the fighting and loneliness, Eden has created a secret place in the garden, where she lies on a blanket and eats cookies with her tin friend, Toy Robot.

One day something very peculiar happens. A butterfly passes by and spreads its magic over a pair of empty toilet paper rolls by the trash can, next to Eden’s blanket. Eden uses the rolls to construct a spyglass and observes her surroundings through her new self-made binoculars. At first, everything looks ordinary. But when her eyes wander across the tree tops, she quickly realizes there’s something special with the spyglass. Who are those quirky birds sitting there – having coffee? And what hilarious earthworms dancing synchronized dance in the compost! What captures Eden the most, however, is what she sees through the spyglass when it’s aimed towards her parents in the family’s living room sofa…
