10-year-old Seto lives with his family in a little Armenian village. The boy is really looking forward to finally have a sibling, who is about to be born. Seto tights white handkerchiefs on the branches of a tree because he believes that this will hasten the baby's arrival. Unfortunately, the newborn dies. The void the baby leaves in the family is filled by a little lamb, breast-fed by Seto's mother.
