Nicolae is a 9-year-old boy. He is a student at the Russian language school in Soroca, a small town in the north of Moldova. He likes going to school very much. He is looking forward to the last day of school to find out if he will be in the third grade.

He knows all the streets of Soroca, because together with his brother Gena they walk around all day. The city is known for its medieval fortress, the oldest in the country, but also for the Roma community that lives in a neighbourhood on a hill in Soroca. The Roma who live here have built extraordinary houses, some of which are replicas of famous buildings from all over the world, such as the Bolshoi Theatre.
