There is a great drought and the entire world is very worried. There’s a legend that there is still water on top of Prankster Mountain, but a grumpy god named Shango protects it and will only let the wittiest and cleverest pass. So, six of the world’s greatest tricksters climb Prankster Mountain to bring back water for their villages.
Juan Pusong from the Philippines, Loki from Norway, Eshu from Nigeria, Kuma Lisa from Bulgaria, Nanabozho from Michigamme, and Anansi from Ghana all come to climb Prankster Mountain but when they run into Shango he whisks them all away to participate in a competition to prove which of them is worthy of his water. Let the Great Trickster Championship commence!
