Sorry if I woke you up.

- Where is Larsen?

- I don't know any LarsenLarsen.

- My first day here.

- You are quite clumsy.

- My little brother liked those too.

- How old is he?

I remember he had one like that,

a really cool old russian one.

The one up there is russian, too.

- Ouch!

- Just a second.

- Hello again.

- Hello.

- Do you think your brother is in heaven?

- Sorry?

Isn't he dead?

That's a long time ago.

People say, I will go to heaven.

- Who says that?

- Everyone. The doctors.

And my mom and dad.

Mostly my mom.

They say, I will be asleep for a long time,

like the bears in winter.

I don't really want to

sleep that long.

No. Sounds like a long nap.

I think, heaven looks like a boring place.

I'm not so sure about that.

At least there's a lot of

space there.

But it looks a bit lonely.

- Is Alfred behaving well?

- Absolutely.

- Say good-bye.

- Hi hi.

- Good evening.

- Hi.

Have you ever heard about Helium?

- The stuff inside of balloons?

- Yes.

- Where do you think it comes from?

- I don't know.

Helium is completely it's own world.

Magical and like a fairy tale,

so you won't believe your eyes.

- Everything feels light and floating.

- I don't know that.

It is strange.

One wakes up in Helium

after the long sleep.

Before that, they say, you are flown

there with the Helium Express.

What Express?

It's very much like that big airship

there. They are almost the same.

- What about the cabin?

- The cabin?

- Yes. Is it red?

- Yes. Precisely.

With a lion's head in front

and wings along the sides?

It's exactly that way,

that I remember it.

- Like this?

- Like as two peas.

I knew there was a different place than

Heaven. Hvad else is there in Helium?

I have to work again.

- Tomorrow?

- You promise?

- Yes, of course. Seeya.

- Seeya.

And there we have Enzo.

- What's the dog's name?

- Red... of course.

That's the secret code

for the airship's captain-

- so he knows, which children

are going with him to Helium.

I'm right out there. If there is

something, you call, all right?

Where is Helium?


Helium is right on the other side

of those clouds there.

The sick children are taken there

so they can become strong again.

The air on Helium is actually

different than here on Earth.

It's much cleaner and lighter.

So you feel healthy and strong.

Almost floating.

The people on Helium live in houses,

that are kept up -

- by balloons and airships.

There's an old tree house hanging there,

waiting for you to come, Alfred.

There's the greenest lawn -

- and you can play football

every afternoon.

When the sun goes down -

- you climb on your chimney

with your favorite toys -

- and nobody can disturb you.


- Yes, a little.

- Do you give a cup of coffee?

Thanks... oops, darn.


I guess I'm not

the born janitor.

I think, you're a

much better poet.

Alfred is really cheering up,

since he met you.

Isn't there anything

one can do?

The first two months he was

always in that swing.

- Where is he?

- He has been moved.


His condition becam worse.

We had to move him.

- Can I see him?

- You can't.

He's in intensive care.

It's only for the family.

- But we're not done with the story yet.

- I know that.

You have to accept the hospitals

rules about privacy.


I gotta go, seeya.

- How can I help you?

- I'm about to fetch some buckets.


I just need to see some ID.

That card isn't good

for this ward.

Oh. Well, bye.

Hi, Alfred.

How is the Express supposed

to know, where I am -

- when Red is punctured?

We make a new balloon dog.
