A magical fantasy turns into a nightmare in this humorous and colourful animation, that can be described as a neon-coloured Lord of the Flies.
When five kids create the imaginary world they call “Gösta Petter-land”, a wonderful forest world filled with cute chickens, it starts out as a perfect utopia. There are only two rules: don’t eat chicken and only speak the Gösta Petter language. But the adult world doesn’t seem too entertained by this fantasy, and a division between the children themselves soon arises.
When children’s imagination collides with the norms of the adult world, ordinary situations get turned into absurd humor.
The film is screened with the additional films in Tempo Short Award 2:
