Bambert is physically handicappedand leads a very secluded life. He loves literature and secretly considers himself a great poet. Actually he has written several tales, but has never dared to show them to anyone. One day he sends all his tales off by means of little balloons. He wants each tale to be able to find its own setting depending on the place where the balloon will land. To one balloon he attaches some empty sheets of paper for a very special tale, a tale that has not yet been written and consequently should be able to narrate itself. After some time Bambert’s tales come back from all over Europe, except for the last special one. Then Bambert discovers that the balloon with the empty sheets of paper has been caught in the gutter.
