This holiday season we bring you stories by The Bear, Berlin’s one-of-a-kind storytelling event. Pascal Heymann’s “A Ride Under the Christmas Tree” explores a moment of moving finality through an electric train set.

“As I let the screwdriver grind the slit and begin turning, I let out a silent ‘I’m sorry Grandpa.’ It’s the first of many hundred screws I undo that day, taking apart my grandfather’s most prized possession.”

The Bear’s next storytelling event is on Jan. 18.
