Only Latte the hedgehog refuses to accept her fate and decides to make the dangerous journey to fetch the magic Waterstone from the clutches of the Bear King, Bantur, and end the drought. But to her displeasure she is joined on her adventure by Tjum the squirrel, who wants to stop her because the journey is too dangerous. Whereas Latte is a rascal, ready for action, living in her own fantasy world where her missing father is king, Tjum is shy and sensible, scared of the unpredictable. But the two at first unwilling companions soon learn that they can survive the journey full of breathtaking dangers and obstacles only by sticking together.
