Go on the musical adventure of two friends, Sound and Silence, as they make music for the very first time. Silence, a first-time adventurer, wants to explore the wonders of the quietest galaxy in the universe; however, it does not take long for the wanderer to crash into the unimaginable – Sound! Sound, an intergalactic smuggler of noises, samples sonorities from across the universe and puts on a show that Silence will never forget!
