Gita has always lived in a land of blurry surroundings and nonexistent melodies.
Until she gets trapped in a sandstorm. The first doesn't change -- her eyesight is just as bad as it used to be. But while she fumbled in the swirling sand and the suffocating darkness, she heard a mysterious song string its way through the air and to her ears.
Immediately Gita knows that something is up with the singing amidst the silence. She begins to explore the curious noise -- asking questions and doing research. But views on this song are varied. The Mistress she serves bans it. The messenger boy she meets follows it. 
Bound to her loyalty by her Mistress and curiosity fueling the relationship with the messenger boy, Gita is forced to make a decision: whether to suffer the Mistress's wrath and become an outcast to the land, or to betray a new friend.

We can't leave, because the shadows won't let us.

But no matter how desperately she longs to escape, she can't, and all because of the shadows. 
As she continually wishes for change, her wish is granted. Darkness invades the light of the sun, and Eerie is helpless in the middle of the forest. When the cloud of shadows finally pass, she finds herself utterly alone -- her parents, her fox, her shadow... gone. 
Her shadow is on the hunt for her soul and will stop at nothing for it, willing to twist and deceive her mind to snatch what it desires. Eerie sets on a journey to find her parents, stretching her courage and strength. But to save them, she has to discover where the heart of shadows truly lies. Will she be able to conquer the darkness before it conquers her?
