Haunting music floats out of the long-deserted Villa Falcao. Who could it be? Josephine and her menagerie of a dog, a mynah and a one-eyed cat, go off to investigate and find themselves hot on the trail of a long-forgotten mystery that takes them down to the musty bowels of the village church. They unearth old secrets, but will they ever find the missing relic of the village of Rachol? Will the stranger who lands up next door ever find his way back home?
