Bruno has a very whimsical grandfather who is the best at imagining adventures and sharing secrets. His strongest dream is to fly, so he plots a plan with his grandchild to build together a pair of real feather wings for the old one to try. One morning both wake up and go up the bell tower in town, the grandfather takes his brand-new wings and jumps… just to break a few bones. Knowing that he could have died, the grandfather reveals his greatest secret: Bruno’s grandmother is, in fact, a seal-woman whom he once met walking by the beach. There is more, though: Bruno himself will turn into a seal when he grows up, so the grandpa wants to coach him for it not to be a scary experience. However, after this revelation, the grandfather dies. But Bruno is ready now.
