Two small children, Eydis and Kari, are put in a bus and sent from the city to the countryside to an orphanage. Their mother tells the sister to take care of her younger brother and that's what she does. But both of them are still young and being away from home is not easy - especially when the teachers are strict and order strict. The only thought that helps the siblings is that they are there temporarily - there are children who live there all year long and have no other place to go.
