When the Sun and Moon's baby girl is kidnapped, the distraught parents beg humans to retrieve her. Thus Nabašnieks, along with the Girl and her little Brother set out on a journey to face both monsters and their own fears. They have just three days: if the Sun's daughter is not found, she will lose her magic powers. An exciting adventure follows, during which everyone must prove their courage, wit, exceptional endurance and helpfulness.

A visual poem about Latvia as the daughter of the Sun, who is born in darkness, gets kidnapped but is later released to blossom like a beautiful flower in eternity. This film is a collaboration between Locomotive Productions and Roze Stiebra, the founder of Latvian hand-drawn animation, director of 62 films.
