9-year-old Ephraim and his father Abraham live in Ethiopia’s mountainous North. Chuni, a lamb gifted to him by his deceased mother, has become his best friend. Ephraim keeps treating her preferentially despite the prevailing shortage of food. When Abraham decides to look for work in Addis Abeba and leave Ephraim with relatives in the South, Ephraim has great difficulty coming to terms with the new environment. In the end, he as well as Chuni emancipate, and grow into new strength, with the hope for a new beginning!
