Filippa & Company – The Great Escape

Juha Virta & Marika Maijala

Filippa and her friends find a piano in their backyard. Each of them wants the piano. André the donkey would use it as a coffee-table, Snoozy the cat would take a nap in it. Filippa simply would love to play her favourite song on it. At the same time the pianist is missing his piano, and the conductor is missing his socks.
