Far far away...

Rodoula Pappa, Kostas Markopoulos

Once upon a time in a little village there lived Yellow, Red, Green, and Blue.
They lived in peace until one day…
Α great storm blew in from far away.
When the sun was high in the sky again, they noticed something shiny at the edge of Yellow’s roof.
That’s when their troubles began…
