Nina lives in the town Daldalina where everyone likes to talk loudly. It is known as the noisiest town in the whole of Philippines! "If you have a soft voice, perhaps people don't need to hear what you have to say," that was the belief. Unfortunately, Nina does not have a voice. What is she to do? But one day, Nina found her voice - in her drawings - and the town people learned to appreciate her voice. They also learned to stop talking sometimes to listen to people who have weaker voices.
