Rust and Water
By: Justin Currie and GMB Chomichuk
An all-ages odyssey exploring the furthest reaches of the ocean and the deepest depths of friendship.
When mermaid Nara discovers an inert, giant robot on the ocean floor, she accidentally activates it. Communicating with the robot is difficult, and even more frustrating—he seems determined to venture into the most dangerous parts of the ocean! Nara realizes he’s trying to get home, and accompanies him on an adventure that takes them past glowing swarms of jellyfish, through the darkest parts of the ocean, and across molten fields of lava. What they find at the end of their journey will test their newfound friendship and threaten the beautiful world they just explored.
