"Nia And Anwar" follows the story of Nia, the young daughter of Indri, a great voyager. Nia stays at the top of the mountain to guard the goddess of night and day Rahna's Cape of Stars, which guides the voyagers' boats home. Distracted from her duty, Nia inadvertently leaves the Cape of Stars unprotected, which enables the trickster, Daawe, to steal the Cape of Stars to overthrow Rahna. Opposing Daawe, Nia and her warrior friend, Anwar, are determined to save the day.

"Nia And Anwar: The Tale of the Great Gray Whale" is expected to start running on the weekends of December 2018 at Gloria de Dapitan (Sunset Boulevard, Dawo, Dapitan City).
