Every five years, Balf and his family gather to watch the living on their annual hike. Balf and his family are part of an unknown species called nervidorkens, who live in the underworld serving Hades. On this special day, Hades gives the nervidorkens a day to do whatever they want. Balf’s family choose to see the living and hope to make friends and take them to the pits of Tartarus to live and stay there for all eternity. Although, Balf and his family don’t have unlimited freedom. After sunset on the day they return to the underworld to serve again.
