Misu is on holiday in an inner city apartment block. He has many friends in the area but still he is bored. A resident, park-keeper Uncle Poldi, is about to retire. Every morning and evening he goes on about how much he will miss the beautiful green lawns. Misu decides to sow grass seed in the stone-covered courtyard for Uncle Poldi’s final day... That Lovely Green Grass was made for children but is at least as enjoyable for adults, too. It speaks of the power of community and the importance of joining forces.
