The story is based on the famous and successful German picture book Esterhazy by Irene Dische and Hans Magnus Enzensberger. The hero is a young and purblind bunny Esterhazy from the Esterhazy Dynasty in Vienna. He is sent to Berlin by the Patriarch Count Esterhazy to find a huge, healthy and beefy bunny woman near some mysterious Berlin Wall. The story describes the most important political event in the recent European history – the Fall of the Berlin Wall from a completely unknown “bunny point of view”.
