Diego Dazzler senses things that nobody else senses. He doesn’t like this. Diego hates his sensitivity. His country is threatened by natural disasters. It keeps getting warmer. The great ice is melting, flooding the land, and driving people out of their homes. One day, Diego acquires magic glasses with which he can see other people’s thoughts. When he sees that someone is planning to destroy his own village, he has to take action. He needs his sensitivity to see danger – whether he wants to or not. Together with the old inventor Amita and his friends Balthazar and Kala, Diego embarks on an adventure that will change his life forever.
