Titre original : Episode 13
Emma needs help because she’s delayed doing an art class assignment until the last minute. As the task requires her to create a work in the style of another culture, Ally lends her an Indigenous Australian dot painting given to her family as a gift. Grateful, Emma takes the painting, intending to use it as inspiration for her own artwork and promises Ally that she’ll return it the following day. But Emma loses track of time and ends up handing in the dot painting as her own! Impressed, her art teacher places the painting on the classroom display board and asks Emma to give a dot-painting demonstration later in the week. Now Emma is really in trouble. Not only does she have to get the painting back to Ally before her father sees that it’s missing, she has no idea of how to do a dot painting and so will be found out as a fraud. When she reports her dilemma to Ally, her friend has no hesitation about sneaking into the school after hours and reclaiming what is rightfully her father’s property. But the expedition proves futile and the girls fail to retrieve the painting. Emma realises that the only way she can sort out this situation is to do what she should have done much earlier – tell the truth. But that’s easier said than done.
