Three-year-old Xiao Wu is brought with her lamb to an orphanage. Her arrival turns out to be a trouble to the headmistress, since she cares only about her lamb and least on whether she is adopted or not. One day, the lamb disappears. Some say it goes to heaven, somewhere far away. Xiao Wu knows nothing about separation, nor has she ever heard of heaven. All she wants is to be with her companion.
