On a snowy day a man with curly hair, big nose, and red and green checkered scarf knocks at the door of a house. He and the father of the house have a harsh talk. After this man who makes traces on the snow by dragging one of his feet has left, and the father of the house starts to smoke cigaret after cigaret, the child thinks that it is up to him to make a detective story out of this episode. For some reason his father never treats him like he is his own dear son. Whenever he talks with the boy he starts to breath like a train. The boy’s brushy hair doesn’t look like his father’s scarce hair. An insisting voice inside him keeps saying “This man is not your father.” When the boy finds himself in impossible situations, it usually helps to talk with the cherry tree Pakize. He adds to his imaginary story the questions about his father and his worries. The chance events also help him to fill up the gaps in his story.
