Plot synopsis
Once upon a time there lived a man called Ibrahim Trubich(Trumpeter), who liked to play the trumpet. But as soon as he took out his instrument, his lanky neighbour started to do repairs and importunately make sawing noises in the court yard, and of course shouted at his wife. And they lived in an old, wooden house, where everything was audible; the result was a perfect cacophony. But a cacophony was not what Ibrahim liked, since he had a fine nature. So he tried to be away from the house during such moments, so he would not see or hear his neighbour and not be tempted by the trumpet. Usually he left on his old bicycle, occasionally he would get out his vintage car; but he was always alone, as he apparently had no friends, and indeed where would he find them in such a strange place? But once, during a walk, Ibrahim saw a notice written white on orange in large letters: "FIND A FRIEND"; moreover, some crocodile was drawn on the notice. Ibrahim thought for a while and decided that this would be a good thing, and he entered the gate where the notice had been put up. He came out absolutely happy and for some reason with a huge box in his hands. A new life began for Ibrahim, because he found a true friend.
