“Water Girl” series (2011) is about a legendary young girl who saved her people from drought. She left the first world and entered the second world called the white world. After she spent some time here, she began to feel helpless as she saw nothing of value to her.

She grabbed the rocks and sticks nearby and played a stick game and sang a song about love and happiness to help her remember her family. Soon the ground became wet and she discovered mud. She got so excited she covered herself in mud and returned back to the first world to show her people. The story is dismal from there on because when she returned to the first world, it flooded with water. Did she survive? Did she save her people?
