Two black fish are visible in the swirling waters of the ocean.
At the front of the ship, the young man calls out to the Hashimi, who sits beside the weeping slave girl. Despite their love, the destitute young man had been forced to sell the girl. She is overjoyed to see her long-lost lover and begins to sing so beautifully that the birds, fish, and the ocean itself join in the celebration.
