Oran lives on Little Drum, where music is everything. Every islander
has a birth instrument and a life song – and the ancestors,
called ghasts, linger to hear the music.

But when the Duchess arrives from the mainland bringing orders
of silence, she threatens the ghasts’ existence, the very soul of
the community.

When Oran hears of a mythical instrument with the power to manipulate
hearts, she brings her ghast best friend, Alick, on a quest
to find it, play it, and change the Duchess’s mind …
