At age 40, after years of drifting, Diego returns to Sicily, his dreams of becoming a musician dashed.

But then he discovers the mouth harp, which captivates him and propels him on a journey from the torrid coasts of Sicily to the frozen flatlands of Yakutia in Siberia, where he becomes part of a prophecy from a century ago.

The “sound of happiness” is at last there.
