Valentina dreams to become a trapeze artist although she believes that because she has Down syndrome she will never be able to achieve it. Her grandmother, her companion in games, lessons and songs, assures her that if the caterpillars manage to turn into butterflies, nothing is impossible. And that one must never lose the enthusiasm or the eagerness to learn, the same way she is longing to become an orchestra conductor, even at her age.
