Rooth is an open-minded young girl who is born into a narrow-minded world of conflict and opposition. Refusing to accept the partial views of those around her, she lets her curious eyes wander around all sides of a Trooth.
The elders are dismayed but the other children are delighted when they see what she sees - and they will never be the same again."
