Khalil, a boy of African origin that recently time that lives with its father in a city of the south of Europe, is fascinated by a thing that has seen for the first time in the life. It is a giant beast, a landscape of colors that always it changes, an incredible water extension, that beats endless¦ It is the sea, the Mediterranean Sea.
The Mediterranean has been during thousands of years encounter and crossing site for travellers, retailers, musicians, poets, emigrants¦ As its name indicates, is a sea located between means of earth, a world between two earth, and for that reason it symbolically contains many essential values of the nature and the culture: the calm and the frustration; the immensity and the beauty; the life and the fertility; the dreams and the promises in the other side of the horizon; the magic and passage of time of the moment¦ In the sea, everything is written and everything flock. The sea is the memory of the world.
Khalil writes letters to its sister Ebele to explain everything to him what is discovering in the border of the sea: the names of the fish, histories and myths that run over the water, the ports where hundreds of languages and harmonies resonate¦ Their letters gather going and returning from the waves, an infinite movement that is the true breathing of the world.
