“Milky brother” is a story of a little boy named Seto who lives in a small village in Armenia. Soon, a new member of his family is to be born. Seto is hoping for a brother, yet the infant dies. Instead of a little brother, a lamb appears in Seto's life. Initial dislike turns quickly into liking – friendship evolves between Seto and the lamb. Unfortunately, not for long. The family decides that the boys has to part with his favourite animal.
