Alina has never been to a holiday camp for children. On the day she arrives, she is crying, and later at night she stays in an empty room while the others are having fun at a party. But her frustration goes after several days, and she is marching with the others and singing songs. Polina has also come to the camp recently, but she hasn't joined a group. She is on her own and lives in a world of fantasies. Two girls share the same room, sleep on beds side by side, but only notice each other while making paper stars for the contest.
