In silence with secrets, a house sits nestled in the woods. Two children find it and climb through a broken window and wander and wonder about what this house was and who lived inside. Where have the people gone who used to call this place their home? How long will the house wait for them to come home? They climb back out the window and return to their own cozy home, while back in the forest the little home sits in the weather and waits.
