Synopsis


An ambitious grandma wants to knit a sweater for the moon, but forgets to calculate the waning and waxing of her “customer”. The grandmother's intention to dress the moon is undoubtedly very kind. But why is it so difficult to dress the moon? What happens to it in the film? And what happens to it in real life? Why do we sometimes see it as a big, shiny sphere, and sometimes as a thin crescent? Let's talk about the moon and its phases, about the full and the new moon. Let's find information on the moon and the stories about it. Why is the moon so important for us?
