Twenty women with no formal profession attend a three-month craft workshop that includes physical activity and music classes. The tale of "Narperi's Bracelet" told in the workshop allows them to question the inequalities associated with gender roles and discover their own strengths. They socialize with volunteer educators and each other in exceptional interactions. They also acquire a skill that generates income. In the process, handmade products begin to be sold on social media; their self-confidence increases and they produce more. The ragdolls they make are important with their symbolic value. Since they create the ragdolls with their dream professions, some become doctors, some teachers, some ballerinas.
