Stubbornly principled, the little girl in this film believes that everyone else will quite naturally follow her desires once their correctness has been demonstrated. In this case, she expects her classmates to back her against a schoolmaster's son, because he is making claims which cannot be true. She trusts in the talisman given to her by her beloved father to magically compel behavior which is not otherwise forthcoming. Her unrealistic view of life is only challenged when, to help save a boy who has gotten into trouble by climbing too high, she uses one of his cherished (but clearly imaginary) ideas to bring him safely down.
