This is the extraordinary adventure of 11 year old friends Summer and Orin, who live in the mountains of British Columbia. Soon after the death of Summer's father, she and Orin travel to a mysterious land of "The Children of the Known", where everyone forgets their sorrows and no one ever dies. Tempted to surrender to this place to help her get over the painful memories of her father's accident, Summer has a choice between staying in this fantasy land, or returning to the real world - a choice of responsibility over dependence, the joys and pains of growing up, and ultimately, mortality.
