Alice and her parents are moving from the city to the countryside. But it is difficult for Alice to say goodbye to all her friends, and it is not easy to get used to the new surroundings. Resistance to her new situation continues for a while, but fortunately the new places turn out to have some positive elements as well. Animals and a new girlfriend turn up, and anyhow you can always plan to return to the city in future, and back to all your old friends.
