Rimo and Zimo are two towns not far away from each other, but divided by a small desert. The people of both towns have been distant for a long time, filled with mutual hatred and fear. One day, two little rascals from Rimo, Bizdik and Minnik, decide to go to the desert for an adventure. Meanwhile, a Zimo family is enjoying a picnic out in the desert with their young daughter and precious clutch of eggs. They lose the eggs when their picnic is interrupted. Bizdik and Minnik find the Zimo baby egg and seek help from the Rimo elder, Granny ChaCha. The family from Zimo seeks help from Uncle Zimo. The two parties and their adventures will change the history of these two enemy towns.
