After a natural disaster brings drastic change, Moomin and Snufkin must learn to cope with unexpected challenges, strong feelings, and a place where the instinct to survive can cause those with weaker spirits to lose all sense of right and wrong.

“It’s a vehicle,” Moomintroll insisted, because he hated to be wrong.
“It’s an art piece,” Snorkmaiden said.
“Treasure chest!” Sniff cried.
“Holding cell,” Little My sneered.
“It’s a piano,” said a voice. They turned to see Snufkin at the window, opening the latch and pushing it open.
“A what?” Snorkmaiden asked.
“A piano!” Snufkin said, folding his arms to lean against the windowsill. “A sort of musical instrument.”
Moomintroll uncovers an old piano in Moominhouse. It starts some interesting conversations.

“Now, now,” Snufkin told himself. “It could be a coincidence…”
A coincidence, that a poem with the exact same title and opening lines as his own work had made its way to publication? Unlikely.
Snufkin didn’t have his original copy to compare the stolen poem against. He only enjoyed writing poetry. Afterwards, he never really wanted to revisit it or share it. He just left the old notebook behind somewhere and procured a new one, ready to start again.
There was no denying the familiarity, though. After hearing it in Moominpappa’s voice, he couldn’t remember when or where he penned it, but the work was certainly his.
That didn’t solve the issue of how this De Hemulton fellow had come to claim it as his own, or why.
A very familiar poetry collection has become popular in Moominvalley.

“Do you remember what you told me?”
“That I’d always come back for you. No matter what.”
“And you didn’t just tell me. You promised me.”
“I did. And I intend to keep it.”
“Good. It’s okay if you’re feeling nervous or scared. Take your time.” Standing up, Moomin brushed the grass off his legs. “Just don’t forget to come back to me.”
