Algė, the main character, feels different to her peers. She is introverted and self-conscious, she has no best friend, and her life is dull and boring. So, in her imagination, Algė creates an alternative to the unexciting reality. Wondering what others might be thinking, and inventing things that could happen, are this teen’s idea of fun. In her favourite coffee shop, she notices a woman who always buys two cups of coffee, but drinks just one. The rejected cup reveals the secret of the Eids. The Eids are creatures of the Intermediary World, perfect humans rushing to the aid of the people of Earth. Algė sends a contract to the respective address, and soon a friend arrives...
