One of the most beloved heroes of Estonian children’s literature, the cheerful rag doll Raggie, has now his own movie full of music, adventure and true feelings. It is a story about family, friendship and universal love that can withstand even the greatest trials.
Mark makes the doll as a birthday present for his younger sister, Ruby. As autumn arrives Mark has to go back to school and Ruby feels lonely without her big brother. Raggie, which has been sewn with love and affection, comes to life, and quickly becomes the little girl’s best friend and closest playmate. Raggie decides to go to a quest in order to reunite Ruby and Mark but things are not going as planned. In this big adventure, both the children and Raggie find themselves in a number of challenging situations and meet peculiar characters of all kinds.
The great book character with whom many generations of Estonian children have grown up is created by writer Eno Raud and illustrator Edgar Valter. Raggie symbolizes the child’s sincerity, curious and rascally mind, the power of true friendship and universal love.
