After moving to the big city, Laura misses her old home very much. She feels lonely, does not like the new apartment and finding friends is not very easy. When she watches a tiny star fall from the sky one night, Laura goes off to retrieve it. She comforts it and carefully treats its broken-off piece with a band-aid. A magical friendship between Laura and the star begins.
