According to the animals that live in the savannah, the elephant is in great need for help: he is moody, he seems sad and he prefers to stand in the dark, to hide his sorrow.

One after another, the animals try to entertain him, to make him laugh, to cheer him up, but nothing seems to work. Suddenly, a mouse crosses the elephant's path. He turns to her sympathetic ear and a real encounter takes place.

Would listening and empathy be the keys to comfort? Would they have the power to free the heart from the weight of tears, sadness or melancholy?
