One man less and three more shells for the sea: this is the secret revealed by a fisherman to a dancer who lost her love, a sailor, in the sea. Would the contrary be possible? She asks herself. So she collects three shells and for thirty days, on the top of the highest cliff, on her knees, dancing, playing, praying, she asks the sea to give her back her sailor, in return of the three shells. It is not to be. However, when the dancer has given up all hope, the sea gives her another gift: a child. A tale that embodies the poetry of the dreams and the profound drama of the fairy tales.
