A brother and sister balance the challenges of middle school with traveling through time to save the world.
Neo and Nubia, and their schoolmate are sent back in time on a quest by their grandfather, whose health is declining, to secretly test if they have what it takes to replace him as griots to save all of the human knowledge from being lost. Equipped with their curiosity, clever antics, and ancient wisdom, they will outsmart an evil cabal that wants to erase history. If the trio is successful, they will be selected to become the next generation of griots, our "new guides." The one catch is that time is running out, and they do not know that this adventure is both their greatest test and a dangerous trap. Neo & Nubia will explore the themes of friendship, courage, innovation, and power.
