This is a film about a little girl who believes in miracles, imagines a lot, dreams and loves to draw. Varya lives with her parents and her cat Vasya on a cliff, which offers an incomparable view: the constantly changing sky is unpredictable in its outlines, the sounds of sea waves, the cries of gulls and the singing of birds. The beauty of nature surrounds Varya from day to day. She sees the unusual in everything. And one day, an amazing story happens to her.
