Taking Chances

Nine-year-old Kiek is very energetic and adores her father. When her father, a doctor, is traveling to a warzone to help people, Kiek starts to worry. He could get sick, have an accident or run into a bullet. To reduce the chance that something happens to him, she does funny things; she searches for a dead dog and a dead mouse. Because Kiek doesn't know any kid who has a dead mouse, a dead dog and a dead father and so it is a really small chance.
