Synopsis of sacks & weapons !!

In the distant future, humanity was forced to live in an underground world known as "The Labyrinth". In this place there are several colonies with different environments, some with very high temperatures and others for example full of gold and silver. Among them is the Pinyin Colony, where a nine-year-old girl named Memempuu and her father Gaganbar live. As "workers" who want to survive, they control a large robot that digs for minerals.

One day Memempuu asks his father to look for his mother. As a "marker", Gaganbar has the most dangerous job in the colony, namely mapping the labyrinth. But this is also an advantage as he is the only one who knows the dangerous roads outside the colony. With that, both will depart on a possibly one-way trip.
