Petra, 12, loves even numbers, hates un-even numbers, and truly hates Pi in all its imperfection and ever-going decimals. This challenge it’s the sole reason why she is the top scorer in the soccer team. If she scores one goal, she has to score two. If she scores three, she has to score four, etc. Petra also has a fear for water. One day she witnesses a boy who swims, and he is counting under water. Another who’s facing the challenges of water is the brother of Petra’s friend. He’s a refugee, on his way across Europe to be reunited with his family.
A story of friendship, love and the challenges of growing up.
