This is the beginning of Naz's adventure in an unfathomably beautiful and dangerous world. On his way to the promised land, where he hopes to have a peaceful and decent life, he meets Krysia, a girl of the same age, who will help him dodge soldiers and all kinds of exploiters. In return, when times get tough, Naz will share with her stories that his father used to tell him back home...´
