Ancient life awaits…

Joined by his sister Marie and friends Jay and Casey, they are invited to explore quarries left behind by tropical oceans that have long since dried up. Through it all, the team is challenged to navigate the success and failure of discovery on their own. Ancient life is waiting for them, but finding it is only the first step.
