When Bina shifts to a school in Nauti, which is a long way from Koli, her village, she must daily cross the mountain, the river and walk through the jungle to get there. She is accompanied by Prakash, a boisterous twelve year old and Sonu, her excitable younger brother. Together, they have many adventures, from helping old Mr. Mani save his Potatoes from porcupines to visiting the town of Tehri and from escaping a landslide to encountering a leopard in the jungle.
