/ Project description /

A young desert fox, Digo, learns that the water has chosen him to be the new Guardian of the Spring, whose role is to keep watch over its harmonious circulation in the Desert.

At first, fun-loving and carefree, Digo is thrilled by the adventure of traveling across the desert to study to become the new Guardian. He is even more excited about his newfound gift of commanding water.


Throughout the journey, Digo slowly learns that reckless actions come with a price. His recklessness could result in the depletion of the water, and thus the end of animal life in the Desert. But there is hope that Digo will finally listen to the water instead of just commanding it, and that it is not too late for him to become a true Guardian of the Source.
