Found at birth on a stormy night in the greek mountains, Jon is taken in and adopted, without having known either his father or his mother.

As an adult, he meets Iro, a warden in the prison where he is incarcerated after a tragic accident. She seems to seek his presence, takes care of him, records music for him. Jon’s eyesight begins to fail…

From then on, for every loss he suffers, he will gain something in return. Thus, in spite of going blind, he will live his life more than ever.
