Synopsis: An artistic fairy-tale inspired by Aesop’s fable “the sun and the wind” along with the poetry of George Drosinis.

A woman is walking carefree in the fields, collecting flowers and windmills,

completely clueless about what is going to happen to her when the sun and the

wind fight over who is stronger. They will both attempt to undress her. Each one

uses his strongest assets. The first one uses his force, the second one his warmth.

Who will be the winner?
