The drought caused all the crops to wither away. Hope lies in Daughter, strong and independent, brave and determined. They say there is a Great Fish who cursed the land and has the power to restore it. Can Daughter find and bring the Great Fish home?
Sinalanta ng tagtuyot ang mga pananim, at si Anak ang huling pag-asa ng kanilang lupain. Ang sabi-sabi, may isang Dambuhalang Isda na sinumpa ang lupain at siya ring makapagbabalik nito sa dating sigla. Mahahanap kaya ni Anak ang Dambuhalang Isda upang maalis ang sumpa?
