He and his friends Falco, Rikta, and Veratta embark on a new adventure to save the lives of all their people. On their quest, they'll encounter old friends, relentless monsters, and the village of the mysterious Hollow Men. Will Canto and his friends lift the curse and save their people before time runs out?
