One morning it appeared, out of nowhere, sitting right outside Stella's house - a broken, old bus.
On the front, held up with packing tape, is a hand-painted sign: "Heaven". How did it get there? Everyone wonders ...but no one knows. Then, out from the shadows steps Stella, normally so shy.
She climbs onto the bus and, in a moment, sees everything that it could become: "This bus could be ours," she says. And so, the lonely old bus - with the help of some colourful graffiti - becomes a hub of activity!
People come together to hold meetings, play games and share stories; sparrows nest where the engine used to be and snails make their little homes under the tyres.
But one day a tow truck arrives and threatens to take away not just the bus, but everything that everyone has worked so hard to create.
Can Stella save the day?
