Little Elika explains that people in Iran value five things above all: rice, the sun, ice cream, fish and tulips. She gives a presentation about her home country in her school in Belgium, which includes a Persian poem which she directly translates into French. Her audience is amazed: Elika talks differently all of a sudden. Something foreign suddenly becomes familiar.
