The Headscarf

Learning to accept and appreciate people and things that are different from us through fun and adventure.

Milly's story
 

Milly is a happy little girl who loves planting seeds, watching vegetables grow in her grandma’s rooftop garden, and playing with her new friend, Aamira, on the school playground. But one day when Aamira’s mother comes to the playground for a visit, Milly sees a strange cloth on her head. She can’t even see Aamira’s mother’s face! Suddenly, Milly is confused and has a lot of questions she needs answered.

After Milly asks her grandma about the cloth, she is led on an exciting adventure guided by an uninhibited potato and other imaginary root vegetable friends, where she learns to accept others, even when they are different from her.
