It's spring in the highlands, and a bright sun starts to spring new life around a slowly-thawing stream. Beneath its cracked surface, lurking in the shadow of a flourishing bank, a young and intrepid salmon is born: Salmo.

One night, under the glow of an ominous moon, Salmo begins a mysterious tranformation that will markthe start of a coming-of-age journey to the glacial confines of the Arttics.
