A young indigenous boy envisions his future while listening to the sounds of a seashell. An indigenous man recalls his past as he listens to the same seashell. The man remembers the birds and fireflies of his childhood, which are no longer there. The short film invites the audience to reflect on the past, present, and future of an evolving landscape and the disappearing biodiversity.
