After three days of silence, Ava begins to share misty memories with her mother, and to draw pictures of a place she's never visited. But a mother's love goes beyond doubt and incredulity, and Anna knows that the only way to unravel the mystery is to find the place Ava is talking about - a tiny island called Seal.
