Once upon a time, a girl named Naila moved with her family to a different country. Her alarm clock goes off at noon, but it feels like early morning because she isn’t used to the time difference yet. She looks outside and decides to go to the beach down the street. The marketplace is crowded and noisy as she makes her way through. She listens to her music to tune it all out, but she does notice a stand with a bunch of old records in a box. She stops for a moment to look at the records, but quickly moves on when she sees the shop owner. Once at the beach, she sits down in the sand and stares at the waves. With her music playing and the sand between her toes, it almost feels like home. She starts coming to the beach ever day. She watches other kids play & looks at pictures of her friends back at home. Until one day, a ball lands near her and sprays her with sand. She throws the ball back to them and almost says hi, but then she remembers they don’t speak her language and won’t understand her. She turns and walks down the beach instead, leaving the kids and their game behind her. She walks farther down the beach than she’s ever gone before, then notices a new sound through her headphones. She turns off her music and follows the beautiful sound to a hidden tide pool full of shimmering rocks and sea shells. There she finds the biggest, most beautiful shell she’s ever seen. She picks it up to look at it, holds it up to her ear, and is shocked to realize this was the sound she’d been hearing. There’s a song inside the shell!
