In a remote village where the rain never stops, six-year-old Kyna spends her days playing happily, protected under her father Din's umbrella beard. One night, her beloved dog Nana disappears. To find her, Kyna embarks on an adventure of self-discovery, and must face the one thing she is most afraid of—the rain. This charming animation shows us that an essential part of growing up is facing our greatest fears in order to gain a sense of resilience and independence.
