A film about two mortal enemies – a little Mouse and a Fox, who after an unfortunate accident, meet in animal heaven. They lose their natural instincts and become best friends. Their wish to stay together after they return to earth comes true, but they are reborn into opposite roles. Thanks to the power of friendship they can even overcome what seems to be impossible. The film Even Mice Belong in Heaven is about hope, a quest for love and courage, and about overcoming prejudices and old pains. It is a story about two outsiders, who combining their very different personalities and ways of thinking, are able to overcome tremendous obstacles and handle situations that might have been considered already lost.
