Miriam is a smart girl which was born with a eye sight problem and her mother realized it when she was 4 years old. Her mother is searching for help ever since and is moving Miriam from school to school, trying to find out where they can get help.

A doctor from the hospital gave her a expensive telescope for free to help her reading but it was stolen from her back.
