Recently, the narrator's safe world was shattered by a snowmobile accident involving his parents, and he was taken in by his grandparents in the village of Ferland. Slowly, he befriends his classmate Luc Bezeau, a misfit who takes refuge from a brutal home environment in a magical undersea realm inhabited by fantastic beings. Together, the boys construct new reasons for living, which launch them on a wild, adventurous search.
