Simon and the Oaks


Take your cap off when you're in the house.

Good night, dad.

Good night, my son. Sleep tight.

Shut up!

Shut up, I said!

You're just an ordinary tree.

An ordinary goddamn oak!

- Do you know what fog really is?

- No.

It's the sadness of the sea.

And it's as endless as the whole sea.

As previously reported Germany

has launched an attack on Poland.

Several cities have been bombed, among them Warsaw.

German troops crossed the Polish border without resistance

from the Soviet Union in accordance

with the Non-Aggression Pact.

In response, London and Paris

have declared war on Germany.

This escalating conflict might soon

turn into a full scale World War.

Imagine being a soldier in Finland.

Can't we go inside?

On the radio they say that they're

going to freeze to death like rats.

I can't feel my toes...

- I'm dying like a rat!

- Come on now!

- I'm dying...

- I'm going inside.

- Don't you have running water?

- No.

The pump's frozen.

Put these on, Isak.

That one's Bertil. She's mine.

Do you want that one?

- Yeah!

Isak, come and have a look.

Fix the flat tire and adjust the saddle

and then you'll have a bike too.

Inga? What are you doing here?

- I heard the war...

Good afternoon.

Inga? Did you walk all this way?

I was just wondering if...

Who's she?

She's a witch, she's nuts.

Dad says...

...she lets the piggies

sleep in bed with her.

Aunt Inga is my cousin.

She might look a bit weird, but at least she's kind.

It's true...

After all these years...

we decided to let it rest.

He might be in danger.

Why should we have it translated now?

We could... help him.

If we show this letter to anyone...

to have it translated...

...then they'll see.

And perhaps we'll expose Simon to danger.

We'd better get rid of it once and for all.
