On a deserted island, there lives an old turtle. She lives all alone in a cave on the beach, but even though her family is no longer living with her, she is not lonely. She takes care of an egg of unknown origin, trying to make it hatch, unsuccessfully. She talks with it, she tries to feed it, she spends time with it, and she grows to love it like her own, even though they never met. Since the turtle is very old, one night, as she senses it is soon her time to leave this world, she goes to visit the egg one last time. As she closes her eyes and drifts off into the peaceful realm of death, an unexpected miracle occurs.
