NTSC/0. a twelve year-old boy who has a remarkable musical talent but at the same time is condemned to going blind as a result of a rare disease. Now an eccentric loner. He finds an outlet in nature and the dream world of a cave where his heightened hearing enables him to collect natural sounds which he then turns to musical compositions for his violin. His only friends are his classmate and the old lighthouse keeper who teaches him not only the violin but also about life in general. Everything changes when the new schoolteacher arrives on the island. She develops a great interest in his exceptional abilities even though he keeps on being indifferent to school.
