A captivating adventure about how long the road home is when you run away in anger!

Life is sweet, it’s finally summer and today is a special day because it’s strawberry day. But sometimes life can be unfair, especially when things don’t go your way. 

After being treated unfairly, the girl gets mad and decides to run away from home. She opens the window, climbs down the ladder and keeps running. And when she finally looks back, the house to her amazement has turned into a dot!
