Have you heard about the Sunflower children’s home run by an exceptional woman called Chocolate?

Katja is an abandoned child who ends up in the Sunflower children’s home. Katja feels so good in the environment of love, friendship, tolerance and humour which Chocolate has created for the children that apples start growing on her head. Beautiful, tasty, wonderful apples. Whoever tries them starts feeling happy and understands all the people around better. Chocolate decides that an applestrudel should be made from Katja’s apples in order to give everybody a bit of Katja’s happiness. All goes well until Chocolate has to go to the hospital to have an operation. A certain Mr. Grey becomes provisional head of the orphanage. He brings stern rules with him which suppress the children’s sense of humour, feeling of freedom, imagination and friendship. What was once extraordinary in Sunflower disappears. Finally, Katja’s good apples stop growing too. Katja is so unhappy that she decides to run away. But then Chocolate comes back and life at Sunflower is wonderful once again.
