The Moon


The Moon – inspired by the tale “The Moon” by Brothers Grimm, four characters from a far away land steal the moon and bring it back to their country. They each take turns oiling the moon by day so that it shines at night. The owners decide to cut the Moon into pieces and have it buried with them when they die. When the moon reassembles itself the dead turn into Zombies. St. Peter steps in commanding them all back to the underworld and the moon is placed in its rightful place in the night sky.
