Description

Karly's imaginary friend, Natasha, teaches her about her spirit, kept in an apartment in her heart. But as Karly goes off to school, she loses Natasha in all of the hustle and bustle of the classroom. Karly is a solitary child, and when other children begin to make fun of her reticence, she comes home feeling alone and blue. Luckily for her, Natasha is there to remind her about loving herself. They decide that Karly should live "inside out"-letting the people around her see who she is in her spirit, and that she will wear her socks inside out as a reminder.
