Immi spends her winters living in an igloo built on ice. She fishes for her supper each night. One day she catches a colorful wooden bird and wonders from when it came. Each day, she continues to fish wooden carvings in various shapes along with her fish and uses them to decorate her home. The bright hues cheer up her white igloo. Before spring arrives to melt the ice below her, she drops her own polar bear ornament down her fishing hole, wondering where it will go.
