This illustrated story follows the memory of an old woman as she reveals her past dreams, uncovering the commonality of young girls' thoughts and blurring the line between fantasy and reality. She is seen painting in Paris, visiting the Seven Wonders of the World while floating through the air in a hot-air balloon, living in a castle surrounded by a moat, and being the archaeologist to uncover the tomb of the five kings. As the dream-telling draws to a close, the reader sees the woman surrounded by mementos of all her adventures, bringing to question whether or not those dreams came true, but leaving no doubt that the woman still dreams.
