A little girl loves a technicolour television show so much that she wishes she could live inside it – but her mother has a secret about a mysterious house that will give her daughter much more than she ever hoped for. The youngster’s connection to the trees of La Plata, which she feels are following and protecting her, and the results of her visit to the lovely house of colours make an imprint on her memory that will last forever.
