In a world on the brink of annihilation, humanity teeters on the precipice of extinction. Against a backdrop of icy desolation and scarce water resources, the last vestiges of survival are nestled beneath the colossal Orbital Trees that punctuate the barren Earth. Whispers of an ancient legend beckon, promising salvation in the form of a sage harboring the elusive secret to replenishing a parched world. Enter Ririha, the stalwart princess of Atland, whose determination propels her skyward on an organic hot-air balloon. Her treacherous ascent carries her to the apex of an Orbital Tree, a mystical realm known as the Canopy. Here, amidst an ethereal pane of crystalline ice, she seeks the long-awaited encounter with her nation's savior. However, fate has a different plan in store. Within this shimmering expanse, Ririha crosses paths with Kaina, an enigmatic figure who etches out a meager existence on the Canopy. Yet, the man she sought remains frustratingly elusive. Stranded and unable to reconcile her predicament alone, the princess discovers an unexpected ally in Kaina, whose burning desire to explore the surface world overrides his caution. Little do they know the perils that await them, including the relentless warfare waged against Ririha's kingdom by the formidable and technologically advanced nation of Valghia. As Kaina unravels the harrowing truths of a war-ravaged land and learns of the unfathomable dangers lurking beneath the surface, he soon realizes that his role as Ririha's guide will demand more from him than he ever imagined. Together, they embark on a treacherous journey that will test their mettle, challenge their beliefs, and reshape the destiny of an endangered species.
