However, inspired by stories told by Kharuna–an old woman, children lead by Ile Trapna start off a journey to find and see the enchanting realm of joyful colors and flavors.
Overcoming the deathly risk of freezing or getting lost they come across the walls of Unmelting House in the middle of the night…
