She is completely immersed in happy thoughts about the magical prehistoric world where she lives with the wild tribe Yuri, feeling safe. Deborah does not want to perceive the reality surrounding her, but over time, pink dreams become a nightmare for her. The attending physician does everything to return the girl from heaven to earth, and teaches her to distinguish reality from fantasy.
