Sophie is small and terminally ill. Before she dies, she longs to find out what life is all about. She persuades a couple of wondrous doll's house characters to make her wish come true. Despite the inclement weather, they set off on what turns into a real adventure of genuine gaiety and inevitable sorrow. When it is over, Sophie is satisfied, because then she knows what life has to offer. So, so much!
Little Sophie and Lanky Flop by Els Pelgrom and Thé Tjong Khing is an award-winning children's classic. Together with Theater Froe Froe, Laika adapts the book and turns the large auditorium at HETPALEIS into an amazing magic box in which actors and puppets tread the border between fantasy and reality.
