Mia's grandmother owns a farm. She raises sheep. One day Mia, her granddaughter sees a baby llama that is very small, named Nattie. Nattie's mother ran out of milk and could no longer take care of her so Nattie was on her own. Mia wanted to take care of her because Nattie reminded her of herself. She was little like her and Mia was going to help Nattie no matter how different she was. Her broken horn, shorter legs, and crooked smile made Nattie unique.
