Twins Jason and Jessy have always wondered what might be at the top of Jelly Mountain, a special feature on their parents’ remote King Country farm. But the problem is there’s no known way to get up there.

Then oilman Shawn Morris flies over the mountain in his survey plane, almost crashing on the top. Something has caught Shawn’s eyes, something important, except he’s not sharing this discovery with anyone.

As the search for oil on the farm continues, it becomes clear that the man will do anything to exploit what he knows. When Jase and Jess eventually find out what this is, they realise they are the only ones who can stop him. What started out as an adventure becomes a dangerous race to save a species from extinction.
