A young black rat, Tarta, his baby brother, Chichi, and their dad set out on a long journey in search of a safe place to live. Their home on a riverbank and their peaceful world had suddenly been destroyed by a construction project. On the way, they are chased by mean sewer rats and have to run for their lives. Every time they are in trouble or danger, charming animals help them out. Light of the River is a moving tale that depicts the splendor of untouched nature, family bonds, and the warmth of heart, which are things we humans have left behind and forgotten.
