The message of friendship and cooperation is central as four friends embark on an adventure to enter a fashion show with their own creation. The problem? They need a fifth to enter as a group. With the help of Babushka (Grandma) and Dogon (the secret agent dog) they are led to the solution. Will they put aside their preconceived ideas of the "outsider"? Can they form a partnership that may even lead to friendship? Find out in, Sewing a Friendship by Natilie Tinti.
