Rahela is only 13 years old but her childhood was stolen from her. She is very clever and wants to become somebody, so she goes to school. After her lessons, she works to help her handicapped father to meet the family's needs. Every day, she goes with her two donkeys to get the water that she sells to her neighbours who live in the nearby hills.
