Marcel, a mortal boy raised by spirits, questions his identity and seeks his biological parents despite having a family. Ignoring warnings of a mythical beast, he embarks on a truth-seeking quest. Naya, a curious mortal girl from a diverse community, joins Marcel after encountering the Beast. Both adventurers fearlessly confront their inner demons, unlike their fearful communities. Marcel discovers his deceased parents and his true family’s support. Facing the Beast honestly and bravely, they eradicate it. In the new world, trauma and avoidance have no place.
