The daily life of a daydreaming little girl, Bahar, and her persistent efforts to discover the world so she can experience life with all its sweetness and bitterness in her own way. Bahar loves reading books and this makes the hardness of her life and the world around her to tolerate. She distorts the folk stories and mixes with the events; her life concurs with two turning points in the temporary history of Iran, the revolution and the war. Though these events are marginal in Bahar’s imaginative world, but the war with its absolute certainty, imposes its reality on the unruly imagination of the little girl.
