Ruby - soon to be six - lives a perfectly balanced life until her older brother Mark must return to school. To keep her company, Mark makes a new companion for Ruby: a roll named Raggie. In a magical moment, the doll comes to life and the two become best friends. Soon the brother-sister relationship is upended and Raggie leaves in order to keep the siblings together. Mark and Ruby join forces to rescue the doll and unite as one family. Based on the beloved Estonian children’s book Sipsik, Raggie is a story of the love between two siblings and of how friendship can conquer the greatest of challenges.
