The pearl fleet has returned from another hard season at sea. The legendary guardian of the Sea Kingdom, Abu Derya, has inflicted a terrible defeat and many ships and sailors have been lost.

When Rashid's grandmother has a dream in which her grandson's hands are filled with pearls, the villagers are determined to reverse their fortune. But Abu Derya is ready once again to unleash his forces including poisonous jellyfish and a giant whale.
Who will be victorious?
