A fairy tale set in Central Europe in early 20th century about a little girl named Anka, adopted from an orphanage by her rich cousin. Soon after Anka’s arrival, the fancy cousin reveals the other side of her character. Disappointed and dejected, Anka runs away, with her heart set on going back to the orphanage. The road takes her to a brick mill deep in the forest, where rugged but kind-hearted brick mill workers give her a temporary home. In the dark depths of the forest, earthly life interweaves with the wondrous, curious world of forest creatures, visible only to children of vivid imagination.
