A grandmother decided to become a hermit in the middle of the forest. One day, his children and grandchildren came to visit. The 3.5-year-old granddaughter doesn’t want to go home and wants to stay with his grandmother to live and play in the forest. Day after day they spent together, until finally the granddaughter entered a forbidden area in the forest, making it difficult for her to find her way home. The grandmother failed to find her granddaughter and she decided to continue her meditation. After meeting the forest spirit guard who was carrying out a rite, the granddaughter managed to find her way home by following a puppy who led her to meet her grandmother again. Unfortunately, this time her grandmother never woke up again from samadi.
