Synopsis
Seemingly quiet and shy, 8-year-old Ema is in love with the world of light and shadows she creates with a help of mirror, water, glass containers… She is one of those who notice everybody but are rarely noticed by others. Two events will change her life: two dangerous ‘little girls’ who are the terror of other kids in the school, and her mother's broken leg. When dangerous girls snatch the mother's medicine from Ema, an adventure begins in which you will meet witches, bats and an old deserted factory looking like some dark castle. The bad become good, light triumphs over darkness and new friends are made!
