While aboard the Breaker on their way to the southern hemisphere, Riser and Chili meet two young women who share their thirst for adventure. Mara and Demia join the men on this expedition into the unknown.
Their search for the supposed treasure takes the four companions into secluded country where they must protect themselves from danger of both the natural and human kind. Only time will tell whether their quest will yield fortune, romanceor death.
