Edhel is a young girl born with an ear malformation that makes her ears look pointed. Ella faces her discomfort avoiding relations with people unless it is strictly necessary. School and her classmates are a nightmare. The only place where she feels happy are the stables where her horse Caronte, waits for her to go and see him every afternoon just like her father used to wait for her before he passed away in a freaky accident during a competition. Edhel lives with her mum Ginevra. they have a love and hate relationship: her mum wants her to have an operation so that she can live a normal life however after meeting Silvano, the weird caretaker of the school, she starts to look at her ears differently. Silvano, who has a passion for fantasy, in fact, says pointy ears are a sign she belongs to the Elves.
