A children show based on the novel of M. Ende
In an abandoned amphitheatre lives a girl named Momo. Nobody knows where is she from and how old is she. She only answers: "As far as I remember I was always here".
She has an extraordinary ability to listen to others and everybody wants to be her friend. But one day the Men in Grey appear in the city and start to steal the time of its adults. They state: "Give us your time now, you will have more of it later".
Momo and the kids try to retrieve the stolen time at the same time learning how to vote and protest. A social critic of consumerism in the format of a fairy-tale together with the basics of democracy invites the children to learn to listen and see what the adults cannot see nor hear no more. We have heard the sentence "I don't have the time for it", but never have we heard why that time disappears and to where.
