" The very first day Nikola and Johan discover that they have a common interest. They both like music. While Nikola unpacks the guitar Johan runs into the garden and start looking for wooden sticks. He carves them into drum sticks. A chair turned backwards will have to do as a drum kit. Together they then perform with music and song, Nikola on guitar, Johan on drums. Both sing - even though they do not understand each other's language.

- I understand him well, says Nikola. I can read his words through his eyes."
