Glad tidings about a device that will turn life around for good – Three treasure hunters follow the cross – A father and a son share the secrets of everlasting joy – On the other hand, a crippled child can only find serenity inside his model railway. A miracle healer shall finally bring him salvation... Little by little, odd human beings and an odd world will manifest. Always with them is a laughing kookaburra, suggesting what may be the only solution to this madness: laughing lightheartedly. The events portrayed in this movie are a collage of actual occurrences. These anecdotes of ambiguous love and hope have been collected in preoccupation with evangelical Christians.
