GIRL IN FLIGHT
Silvia's father had often promised to take her to Rome. When it fails to work out yet again, the 11-year-old decides to board the train anyway and travel to the capital by herself. On the train, she meets Emina, a somewhat older Roma girl who seems unafraid of anything. Silvia follows her, and the two develop an unusual friendship.
