- Both text and illustrations grab you by the throat
- Haunting and compelling story about a lonely boy

A vulnerable story about saying goodbye and grief, and about how distance can teach you to look in a different way.

On the rooftop of a building in the city there is a boy. Inside him everything is hurting. But that’s something he tries not to think about. He doesn’t want to join the swarming that’s happening below. He looks at the doings of a man on the opposite side of the street, of the woman on the square, of the girl who goes to school, of his mother … He looks, he observes. He has nothing to do with it. Or does he?
