An incredible picture book, with no text, whose images tell the story of a silent and lonely young sailor who is embarking on a journey and carrying a precious cargo. During this journey two parallel worlds emerge for the reader, complementing and sometimes contrasting with each other. Words are not needed as the richness of the illustrations invite the reader on a journey that is both internal and external.
