It's a cold winter night, when a young old girl crawls down into an old, dark farm silo. Angry, sad and depressed she cuts off her hair and collapses on the cold ground, just in her nightdress and far too big rubber boots.

This film broaches the issue of child depression and is meant for children and adults alike.
