So the wind whisks Princess off on a magical journey, ultimately carrying her to a new home where she can once again be loved by a little girl.

Through her abuela's eyes, Rosalba visits with relatives who still live on la isla and sees the beautiful terrain of the island, from the lush, tropical rain forest to the bustling old city.
