Synopsis

“¿Quién soy yo?” se pregunta Tiburoncito. Cuando su saco de huevos, llamado “monedero de sirena”, se rompe perdiéndose en una tormenta, él se encuentra en un viaje a través de diferentes habitats oceánicos: bosques de algas marinas, los arrecifes de coral, y praderas de pastos marinos. Él aprende qué tipo de tiburón no es, pero no qué tipo es. Él necesita encontrar a la “sirena” para saber a dónde pertenece, pero el océano es grande y lleno de peligros. ¿Podrá averiguar quién es y qué es lo que puede hacer—a tiempo?
