Occhidiluna e un piccolo orfano che vive in un'isola minore dell'arcipelago toscano; e chiamato cosi perche, durante gli attacchi del mal sacro di cui e affetto, straluna gli occhi suscitando negli abitanti dell'isola paure e inquietudini diverse. Non si distacca mai da una grande conchiglia di cui si mette in ascolto e che piu spesso porta alla bocca: dunque, non solo l'ascolta, ma anche giunge a parlarle. I piu sono convinti che il ragazzo sia dotato di un arcano potere: quello di attirare sull'Isola tempeste ed uragani in coincidenza del manifestarsi della sua malattia. Per questo Vallebruna, personaggio influente dell'Isola, convince i suoi abitanti a mandare il ragazzo all'isola del relitto. Occhidiluna trova alloggio ed affetto. Una volta guarito dal suo male, scopre improvvisamente di poter parlare a Dio e allora decide di liberarsi dalla grande conchiglia. Nell'Isola, dove ha lasciato i suoi coetanei, succedono cose allarmanti che inducono gli isolani a richiamare Occhidiluna.
