Description[]

The ending is a eerie black-and-white montage with real actors. A barefoot, light-haired girl is dragging a heavy chest through the woods. She wears a white dress, a checkered horned half mask and a crescent moon pendant. She uses her dress to collect the keys which were hanging on branches.

The girl tries to open the chest. She looks through the keyhole. She sees bizarre figures, including a jester, a merry-go-round, a bunny plush, a hatching egg and some tools. She uses scissors to cut a strand of her hair. She inserts the strand through the keyhole, starting a mechanism which opens the chest.

The interior of the chest reveals someone in white, with a goat mask covering his face. This figure gives a box to the girl. She finds more boxes inside the first one. The last, smaller box has a strand of hair. The girl and the masked figure go inside the chest. Some pages fall next to the closed chest and, on top of it, a black-haired girl and a raven appear. The girl blows some bubbles. She looks to the camera with her bright, large eyes.[8]
