After years adrift, Diego returns to his hometown in Sicily. His dream of becoming a musician did not come true. He does not have a job, he has no plans for the future and has just been given up by his girlfriend. Looking at the rusty skeletons of the ships in the harbour, he is kidnapped by a mystic sound: an ancient musical instrument, the Jew’s harp, seems to indicate a way. Thus begins a journey of redemption, from the torrid coasts of Sicily to the frozen plains of Yakutia in Siberia, where the Jew’s harp is a spiritual instrument and national symbol. Diego meets the great masters and discovers that his journey is part of an ancient prophecy. The “sound of happiness” seems to be there.
