Born and bred in a small agricultural village, Vasso spends her days in the yellow wooden kiosk at its heart, keeping the locals supplied with cigarettes, sweets, ice creams and more.
By now, Vasso knows the stories of most of her fellow villagers, and can often be found sharing them over a frappé with her friend Juliet.
But Juliet has noticed that Vasso rarely talks about herself.
Why is Vasso so reluctant to share her own story?
Why did she leave the village for Orino Island one summer, many years ago – and what was it that finally drove her back?
