One day, the tree of the world was broken in two. The bottom half of the tree was hanging from the top, with only a thin piece of bark left holding them together.Together with the tree, happiness was also separated.
The only way for the world to be happy again was for the people to truly love the stars. With this love, the stars will shine so brightly. One day those beautiful rays will become so strong, like a rope, to lift up the lower half of the broken tree and to unite it once again with the upper half, to be whole again as it was before.
This is why little Arseni wants very much to become a friend of the stars but does not know the way. Should he wait for a star to fall or should he find two thousand ladders to climb up and take one from the sky? Maybe he should first find a fir tree, since the stars love the fir trees very much? But how can he cut a fir tree, when by sacrificing the life of a tree one cannot gain the love of a star?
