Synopsis
This is a story about little Bobo, who was the smallest little boy in the world. All the little girls and all the little boys were bigger than the little Bobo, and whenever the kids were sorting by the size, Bobo was the last in line. That’s why little Bobo was very unhappy. The playful little boys had to be careful not to bother him because little Bobo was hardly bigger than the ball. Adults looked like giants from fairy tales to him, he was afraid of old crows from the park feared him as a black dragon. Bobo was so small that his parents at the door made a special small entrance, similar to the one who had a fat neighbor’s cat, terrible as a tiger. Bobo’s greatest wish was to no longer be the smallest boy in the world. That is why little Bobo one day went out in rain in order to grow bigger …

Bobo is based on a picture book of the same name. A simple form of a children’s tale with a universal message speaks to all generations regardless of cultural, religious, political, national, ethnic or other contexts. The story of a little boy deals with the universal problem of fitting in. It is a story about a journey between two similar and infinitely different worlds within the same universe, a story of a journey from the world of misconception to a world of knowledge, from a world of inhibition to a world of fearless freedom, from a world of fictitious unhappiness to an imaginary world of happiness.
