Karim’s family is poor, but he is a happy boy. Every night when he stares at the ceiling above his bed, the damp spots come to life and adventures begin. He finds a patch of green grass for the hungry cow. And it must be her who sends him a glass of milk in the mornings, as a way of thanking him! One evening, there’s a surprise. All his friends have disappeared. His father has repainted the bedroom ceiling… That night, Karim tosses and turns, unable to sleep. The next day, he finds himself a notebook and a pencil and starts to write down his friends’ adventures. And so begins a long career…
