Once Upon a Time There Was Olijo, a Caribbean frog. After his childhood Olijo had been afraight of water. One night Olijo sees a wonderful dream, in which he sleeps with nice and wavy water. After this dream he decides to begin and like water, but turns out that it’s not easy for him; water drops are pranksters, Banana Leaf is a faithful umbrella-friend and sun shine is so sweet. But Olijo is determined, and soon he gets help from Ahti the expert of all the waters and Ahvenais the water lady.
Olijos story is told colourfully in the ways of dance and music. This story takes children and other viewers all the way from dream world into carnival atmosphere.
