Lacuna is a girl without a family or a home. She lives alone in a swamp made of ink, but with the help of Polaris, a will-o’-the-wisp, she decides to travel to the Northern Kingdom, in the hopes of finding other people. The only way to get there, though, is to travel the strange and dangerous Blue Road. Along the way, Lacuna must overcome trials, including a Thicket of Tickets and a stubborn guard at the Rainbow Border. At the end of her journey, she reaches a city that will test her ability to survive and her ingenuity in the face of adversity.
