Fia looks out her window and across the bay. She longs to see the mythical island of Hy Brasil, which appears and disappears in the water. She slips out of bed, walks across a moonbeam and arrives at the island. She walks with magical creatures, dances with a host of girls and boys, and visits the bottom of the sea and the stars in space. Finally, Fia returns to the town, and follows the small compass of her heart - all the way home.
