Zosia, full of imagination and strong-charactered, sensitive Oskar, independent but shy Kinga – they all start their education in a school with dormitory for blind and visually impaired children. They are like chicks. Seven years old, too small to leave their family nests. In difficult moments like a separation with their parents they try to help each other. It’s a film about life lesson of “flying”, about surviving of another day even when everything around falls apart. Leaving for a school with dormitory becomes the most crucial moment in kids’ lives. The situation which harms them at the beginning, but gives them strength in the end.
