In a world ravaged by drought, living beings have taken refuge in megacities inhabited by poverty, crime and giant reptiles. Jona is a boy, is just returned to the city and his father, the city commissioner, is dead. The priest prays and invokes Arakis, an imaginary and divine creature to whom all are devoted. Angry crowd shouts that he was corrupt because he made deals with the 3 criminal clans of the city and between people there is Kala. Jona wants redemption, Kala is tired of living on a landfill with her tribe and of his life that doesn't change. With the death of the commissioner the balance has broken and now the police are facing open warfare between the 3 clans for the conquest of the blue diamonds: very ancient precious gems and the currency of this world. Those girl and boy will try to find their way to survive in this world and just when the conflict is reaching his climax, they will find the way to breaking the mold and bringing the people back water, life

Director’s statement
In the most important moment of the story, the girl and the boy give life to a unique event that will transform all the diamonds thus nullifying the entire economic system of the world of Riamise. Battles between criminal clans suddenly no longer make sense and nature come back to life. This film has an important and urgent message to convey about doing the right choices for the environment and for society. Like Ibrido studio, we used to go to schools with our projects talking about the fight against crime and we saw that it is a fundamental theme for the young people of our country (and not only). Therefore we have chosen a language close to this target audience, with a dynamic 2D animation style, a story written by two young italian cartoonists and a soundtrack halfway between rap and tribal music with the collaboration of famous artists.
