25th of December, in the Eighties. The family gets together in the grandparents' house. When I was twelve I dreamt that I was putting in motion the static pictures of the crèche. With this film I tried to do the same with the memories of my cousins and relatives, with that house and with those rituals. It's a fake documentary and a fake animation film, a semi-fiction about children who go to war, play music and take over.
