A child makes their way along the Arctic shoreline on a dark day. Everything around them seems as ugly as their mood, from the weather, to the mud, to the fish and snails. Even the sky is ugly. This is the place they always come to whenever they feel ugly, bad, sad, or angry.

But things start to take a turn when the child closes their eyes and listens to the waves, which remind them to breathe. The tiny krill flick their tails, and the brightly coloured sea stars seem to glow. What they once saw as an ugly landscape is now wonderful and vibrant, and alive with music and beauty.
