A pantomime artist very much impressed by a book of tales. He wishes to share the tale the book tells with children so much that he starts to live in a book because of the purity and beauty of this wish. Butterflies, bumblebees, flowers, musicians, storytellers and puppets suddenly emerge out of the book. Tale, just like the nature comes alive. Storytellers start telling the tale, puppeteers start animating the puppets of the tale, musicians start playing the music of the tale and a nature story begins. Cinnamon, whose mother and father are on a business trip, will be attending the art school for children in the summer vacation. Because of this, her mother and father took her to her grandfather, who lives in the forest. A wonderful, humming and merry summer is taking place in the forest. However, Cinnamon is sad because for the first time she is separated from her mother and father. She stays reserved and has gotten more petulant. She is having a hard time adjusting to her new school, new friends and everyday life in the forest. Her grandfather’s love, power of nature and unexpected events will deeply change Cinnamon.
