Aquina is all excited about the next day’s feast at the village church. She joins her friends in cleaning the church and its statues. Little does she know that her excitement will soon turn into anxiety and that the morning of the feast will turn into a thrilling adventure. To her rescue come Caetan the sacristan and Brownie, her pet dog with a most unusual talent.
Feasts are celebrated with great solemnity and gaiety in Goa and are memorable events for every child.
