Seven-year-old Roma loses her beloved parakeet Mimi. Remaining optimistic, she sets out to search for her in the nearby forest. She takes her new parakeet with her, which her mother bought her, because she and her friend Cypek believe that her singing could attract Mimi. And it is here that the magical story of a seemingly ordinary adventure begins, in which Romy makes many new friends, survives tense moments, tries to do things on her own, and learns that you can’t control nature. It takes place in a potentially dangerous environment, but no great drama takes place in it. Every encounter, even seemingly scary, turns out well. This positive film with a strong environmental message and unique atmosphere premiered at this year's Berlinale, where it won the main prize in the Generation Kplus category. The film is also exceptional in the context of Slovak cinema, which is rarely devoted to the children's genre.
