Tales of the Republic

Episode 3: Perilous Journey

There are some promises a sister just can’t break.

Po is determined to find her little sister. They were separated when the rebels razed King Valley, and Jia’s all she has left in the world.

They agreed to meet in Rose Petal, but neither Po nor her disfigured companion, Ari, know the city in which they find themselves lost.

To be reunited with her sister, Po must cross the riot-mad city of Enshi, and avoid the increasingly violent clashes between the rebels and the occupying army.

Jia is counting on her. Jia is all she has left. But when a police patrol catches her out after curfew, Po’s resolve faces its first true test.
