In a hauntingly beautiful and unique tale, Alberto Villoldo tells the tale of a fisherman who hooks the bones of a young girl that was swept away by a tidal wave as he comes to care for the life she had beneath the waves.
A great tidal wave sweeps down on a small Aleutian village, carrying a young girl named Annuk to the bottom of the sea. Her bones lie undisturbed on the ocean floor for years… until the day a fisherman hooks her on his line and pulls Annuk out of the water.
At first sight, the fisherman is terrified at the sight of a skeleton. But as he slowly begins to consider Annuk’s life, he comes to pity her as he imagines how lonely she must have been living beneath the waves for all those years.
