2019 Song Contest Music Video Winner

The story is about child labor inspired by the lives of real children. Gregor Meyle (German singer) is sitting by the window and trying to write a new song. It seems that the night sky inspires him his new song by forming some constellations. In a series of flashbacks, we follow the children through their hard days. Nevertheless, they could get through their difficulties and create a happy ending for their story.
