There is no water and the population struggles to live, searching comfort in religion, always asking for the same thing: blue crystals. The blue crystals are the Riamise's money and and the richest of these are the 3 criminal clans that control the city the police tries to keep the place safe, but when the commissioner is killed everything changes. He was Jona's father. Jonah is a boy who comes from another city and will begin a friendship with Kala and her landfill tribe. They will learn from each other how to grow and survive as the battle for supremacy and wealth puts their lives in jeopardy. for When the battle between the factions reaches its climax Jona will have an intuition, Kala will put it into practice and together they will discover the true nature of the crystals and the secret behind the absence of water. With that discovery they will change the order of things in Riamise forever, returning water and 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 comes back to life. This film has an important and urgent message to convey about making 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 them). 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.
