A symbolic figure of a woman is walking next to the sea. She wants to connect with the environment, feel the sun, breath the fresh air, when suddenly a strange sound disturbs her calm. The sound source is indefinite. The woman approaches the sea and the sound gets louder. The sound invites her to follow the source. She walks into the sea until her face touches the water. The woman now clearly hears voices, cries and screams of people that exhale out of the sea. A soundscape brings to her scenes from the rescue of refugees.
