Ida is full of expectations when she goes to school on the first day. Who will she sit next to? She doesn’t yet know the other children. And all those new rules seem so unfamiliar. Then a boy is placed next to her – a boy! His name is Faruk and he managed to get lost on his way to school right on the first day …

A subtle and heartfelt story about the rescue of earthworms, entries into homework books and how all of this leads to friendship.
