A young girl returns from pre-school and tells her mother all about her new friend Soosha. She wants a colour backpack like Soosha, and hair ribbons like Soosha. She talks of Soosha every day after school.
The girls mother attend a school event and, out of curiousity, asks a teacher to point out who Soosha is.
