  3. Synopsis
    Moving can be exciting, but also
    overwhelming and boring. Especially for Tess,
    a 7-year-old girl who arrives with her parents
    at their new house. But her opinion is about
    to change when she finds a magical object in
    her attic with which she can travel to any time
    and place in just a spark. For now, it seems a
    bit random, and this can be dangerous. Will
    Tess be able to find a way to control it and
    travel at will?

  5. Tess
    Our protagonist, Tess, is a curious and
    fearless 7-year-old girl. She likes to
    investigate and read books about
    curiosities of nature, search for bugs in
    her garden, and get dirty with mud. But
    what she loves the most in the world are
    dinosaurs, and she wants to decorate
    her new room with this theme.

  6. The day she finds the toaster, she
    doesn't hesitate for a second to
    approach it. Not even the electricity and
    sounds it emits will be enough to stop
    her.

  9. Mom and dad
    Tess's parents are young and sweet.
    They have been living together since
    they started dating ten years ago, and
    during that time they have lived in
    several homes, some better than others.
    They always wanted to move to a big
    house, and when Tess was born, this
    became a necessity. Now, seven years
    later, they were able to fulfill this
    dream.
