Raya Ahmed Mansoor, 2018
Based on the Maldivian folk story Havva Didi, a story about finding comfort in the sea.
“..she gradually became accustomed to the night and she learned to walk to the beach in the starlight and not fear looking at the dim sea. Watching the white, frothy foam of the waves breaking against the coral reef protecting the island suited her mood and fed her soul”. - Xavier Romero-Frias, Havva Didi, Folk Tales of the Maldives, 2012.
