Tanya tries to take Sonya's cello to sell for food and Nikolai is outraged. He finds little notes his daughter had written to her dead mother inside it.

Kish lost his eyesight as a baby but uses a form of echolocation to build a mental picture of his the world around him and is able to pursue outdoor hobbies such as hiking, despite being totally blind. It's his mission through World Access for the Blind to help other visually impaired people learn the technique and achieve the kind of independence he enjoys.
