La guerra ha terminado y la pequeña Ayobami, al fin, puede ir a la escuela. Todo el mundo está contentísimo y la alegría se ha apoderado del pueblo. Los niños están emocionados por ir a la escuela y pasárselo en grande, pero Ayobami está tan impaciente que no puede esperar a los demás niños y decide ir sola a clase. Para que no se pierda, el padre de Ayobami construye un barquito de papel y lo lanza al río abajo. «Si sigues el barquito llegarás a la escuela», le dijo. Sin embargo, el barco naufragó y Ayobami tuvo que buscar otro camino y decidió cruzar la jungla por el tortuoso sendero que discurre entre la maleza. Con la única ayuda de un papel y un lápiz gastado, la niña inicia una apasionante travesía con un objetivo fundamental: aprender a leer y escribir. ¿Permitirán los animales salvajes que llegue sana y salva a su destino?

 

The war is over and little Ayobami can finally go to school. Everyone is extremely happy and joy is all over the town. The children are excited to go to school and have a great time, but Ayobami is so impatient that she cannot wait for the other kids and decides to go to class alone. So that she does not get lost, Ayobami's father builds a paper boat and pushes it out onto the river. "If you follow it downstream, you will arrive at the schoolhouse," he told her. However, the ship wrecked and Ayobami had to find another way to school, so she decided to go through the jungle following the winding path that runs through the undergrowth. With the only help of a paper and a spent pencil, the girl begins an exciting journey with a fundamental objective: to learn to read and write. Will the wild animals from the jungle allow her to reach her destination safely?
