Description

Before and after school, while her parents work, ten-year-old Sonia stays with her next-door neighbour, Mrs. Kaminski, and her granddaughter, Marta.

When Sonia accidentally breaks Mrs. Kaminski's seemingly precious blue vase, Marta offers to keep it a secret for a price. But Sonia is not able to satisfy Marta's escalating demands-more gifts, more money and favours-and when Marta spreads lies about Sonia in school, her classmates taunt her.

Finally, after a teacher makes a discovery in Sonia's knapsack, she is forced to find the courage she needs to confront her bully.
