Synopsis

Six-year old Anička Čejková has moved with her parents from a village to a new Prague housing estate. For the moment, they are alone with her father, but her mother is to come home soon from hospital with the newborn Ondřej. Anička loses her way on her first walk around the neighbourhood but is helped by a kind young woman. She is the schoolteacher Řeháková, whose class 1st A Anička soon enters. The first-formers are fond of the school, and when Anička tells them that her mother will return from the hospital, they decide to prepare a welcome-home party for her. When Anička's mother comes home, she walks in amazement through an espalier of children into an apartment full of flowers. Her parents are quite busy with the baby and forget about Anička a little. Father Čejka realised that one morning when Anička walks him to work and they talk on the way. The little schoolgirl will be on duty that day at school - she is going to sweep off the blackboard and make sure that the hands of her classmates are clean. Lidka, Anička's best friend, gets angry when she is asked to wash her hands once more. The two little girls reconcile in the evening during the lantern procession. It is Christmas. Classmate Olda secretly confesses to Anička that his father whom he always boasts of drinks and does not live with him and his sick mother. Anička and Lidka study with Olda in an effort to improve his marks. Both girls then fall ill with measles. They recover just in time to receive their half-yearly reports. Lidka and Anička have the best marks Olda has mark two.
