Kept in a climate of nostalgia and magic realism, it is a story about a town over the sea, about a little boy and his eccentric grandfather. The old man collects sounds which he closes in tins as a way of saving memories. He also dreams that one day he will lift up into the air and fly away. Only his grandson believes it is possible.
