Synopsis

Crocodile-men, a mystic river, some kids that like fishing and a war that ends share the same land : Bojaya. In this place, villagers have strange beliefs and celebrate the “Novenario” death ritual.
This might be the beginning of a very long story, where spirits and humans meet each other to learn what is there to life after the end of war.
