En su isla natal sobre un océano verde esmeralda, la única vida que Trenza conoce es sencilla, marcada por el placer de coleccionar las tazas que traen los marineros de tierras lejanas y escuchar las historias que le cuenta su amigo Charlie.

Pero cuando el padre de Charlie se lo lleva en barco para buscarle esposa y sucede una catástrofe, Trenza deberá colarse como polizona en un barco y partir en busca de la hechicera que habita en el mortífero mar de Medianoche.

Sobre unos océanos de esporas repletos de piratas, ¿podrá Trenza abandonar su tranquila vida y crearse un lugar en un océano donde una sola gota puede significar la muerte instantánea?
