|Plot Summary of Sigrid and the Lost World|
|"Sigrid is a young orphan girl who has been on a mission on another planet, on the submarine “Blue Deep” since she was ten years old. This planet, Almoha is entirely covered by poisoned waters that have the power to change any human being into fish. This is why, when the only continent of Almoha was covered by the huge ocean, all its inhabitants were transformed into fishes.
During a surveillance in one of the abandoned areas of the submarine Sigrid discovers a forgotten hub lot that allows her to see for the first time the underwater world of Almoha. She feels fascinated by this universe and wants to understand its hidden secrets.
One day, the submarine discovers the existence of a few “forest vessels” that had the mission to preserve the last remaining plants on the planet. The commanders of the “Blue Deep” decide to send Sigrid and her friends are sent in expedition on these floating islands in order to blow them up. The young people keep wondering why they should destroy the last vestiges of a lost population. What is it that the officers of the submarine are afraid of? "
