12-year-old Liina lives with her mother in a small apartment. The mother works nights so Liina spends a lot of time by herself and dreams of a dog. The dream is so strong that she tells a lie at school about owning a dog.

 

One day she hears a dog whimpering in a downstairs apartment. A meeting with the neighbour makes her dream come true.
