Life in Nahuel's seaside town revolves around the ocean, which makes his fear of water a challenge. What's worse, he can't help his fisherman father on his boat. One day, Nahuel finds a magical book, the Levisterio, that seems to offer a solution to this problem. But a dark sorcerer is after the book and captures his father to set a trap. Guided by Fresia, a shaman's daughter, Nahuel sets out to rescue his father and find courage from within.
