A lonely boy called Jovan suffers from cerebral palsy and his classmates often pick on him. However, Jovan’s life radically changes with the arrival of Milica, a new student, who will help him experience what he thought was completely impossible. Bit by bit, the brave and determined Milica will break the walls Jovan has built around him and ask him to join her on a proper adventure. The two kids will set her father free from his new wife – Milica’s stepmom – who is a witch! Jovan and Milica grow a strong friendship which changes them and their surrounding for the better, and Jovan realises that in order to become a real hero, he first needs to learn to accept himself the way he is.
