Ademoka is a migrant from the small Gipsy tribe – Lyuli, who illegally crossed the border of Kazakhstan. The father and mother make the girl to do that all in their community do: to beg. By chance, Ademoka sees Gone with the Wind from the middle of film in the strange house. Since then Ademoka wants to know everything about the cinema. She has a dream to create such films herself. But Ademoka will be 15 soon and she can neither write nor read. Her destiny is to marry the sheikh soon and beg in various cities with her children. And Ademoka makes decision to learn the language, reading and writing and to become a script-writer, even if she has to start school.
