Yam a young girl who is thick skinned like the others along her father Abra and grandfather Asfour have to fulfill the seven suns ritual of collecting the traces of her dead mother Ward and burn it all besides the dead body on the seventh day. But Yam has another secret plan of hiding the wooden doll left by her mother and told to be the only way to connect to the snow boy who will help her to find her unpresent voice. A stranger merchant visits the village and plays Yam a familiar tone on the flute which will rise the feelings stored under her skin and put the whole village in jeopardy.
