Summary (with the aid of Google Translate): The Echo has lived for centuries in the mountains and every Sunday morning, between seven and eleven, greet the people who visit it, and listen to their desires. There are those who ask kindly, those with arrogance, and those who do know yet what to ask. And then there is a child who has a full sleep, and a silent desire. But the echo hears everything, even the most secret thoughts. A song with the silence of the children and their biggest dreams.
