"The humans have gone underground. Within tunnels beneath the earth's surface, families and friends have found themselves separated and old feuds reign supreme. But magic is still alive, and with the help of a flute, some bells, and three delightful spirits, four young people may have what it takes to save the planet and start anew...
This much-loved fairy tale is given a post-apocalyptic twist as the search for life, light and knowledge becomes more urgent than ever before."
