Sometimes a girl wishes to grow up too quickly. Fragility, naivety, and innocence on the White Silk path take her on an unpredictable journey; the programme is here presented with time lapses that generate a fragmented memory of a traumatic event.


She wants to love, she wants to give, and cannot fight her instincts anymore. However, her innocence leads her to an unpredictable turn of events, when real life is unveiled to her and she is confronted by fear and regret. Suddenly, she wishes she was a girl again...
