Two sisters find a way to endure the hot summer nights by savoring the scents and sounds carried into their bedroom on currents of air. The girls lie awake and wait for each new wave to arrive, bringing jazz and Latin music, the smell of fried fish, the screeching of alley cats, and a soothing surprise that finally lulls the children to sleep.
