The Quiet One ()

In a Stockholm suburb, children from all over the world go to a school to learn Swedish. All of them have just arrived in Sweden. Six-year-old Maryam from Iran is the last to arrive. The film follows her struggle to grasp the mysteries of a new language and to find her feet in all that is new. How does one express oneself sufficiently to make friends, without having the words to do so?
