While flying over the miles for several days, a seagull lands in a village whose name it does not know and from which emerges a musical tune. The author of this melody is Awa. For her, music has become a way to soften her pain and not to see the harsh reality that her village is facing: pollution and the proliferation of jellyfish that have caused the disappearance of turtles and more precisely Soula7fet, her best friend.
