The story of Kaina of the Great Sea of Snow takes place in an alternate world where the earth is in danger of disappearing due to the ever-expanding “Sea of Snow”. Humans live either on the surface at the roots of giant trees or high up in the canopy that spreads across the planet’s atmosphere.
A chance encounter between Kaina, a boy from the canopy, and Liliha, a girl from the surface, will change the world.
