Half Elf

Trausti the lighthouse keeper prepares for his 100th birthday and/or funeral while trying to reconnect with the elf within. Meanwhile, Hulda retreats into a world of poetry with the help of an electric magnifying glass. When Trausti starts singing, Hulda tells him to stop screaming. In this world, life is celebrated, despite the reality that awaits us all in the end.
