 The story is about a young Thai girl called Dawan, living

in a small village, who won a scholarship to study in a
city middle school. She faced the disapproval of her
father who thought that studying was not for girls and
she should have given the scholarship to her brother as
he was second in the test. Dawan tried many ways to
persuade her father to let her further her studies. She
fought for her right to get basic education to see more of
the world beyond her small village. Even thought she
failed many times, she managed to convince her father
in the end. When the bus arrived to take her to the city,
she almost changed her mind because she was
reluctant to leave everything and everyone in the village.
After her grandmother convinced her, she finally went,
leaving the village behind her to pursue her dream.
