Summary

The story of a young stewardess named Vanda, who constantly has the feeling that she must fly even in her private life, without solid ground under her feet. The escape to the god-forsaken village of Runina, where Vanda's grandmother lives, pulls her into an adventure where she ends up dealing with human fate. This journey will force her to stop and get to know the value of her origin, so that she can return with the certainty that she has a home in her world.
