FoJo is a round, glass, iridescent float manufactured by a Japanese company to secure the heavy gill nets used for fishing in the sea. This isn't a fun job for the glass floats because many of the fish they hold captive are their friends.
FoJo dreams of escape, and one stormy night he takes the opportunity. He is set free from the gigantic net and embarks on a seven-year, 6,000-mile journey across the Pacific Ocean to reach a soft, sand dune in Oregon. Throughout his adventure, FoJo becomes a close friend of the Mighty Wave who carries him through the many challenges of the sea.
It isn't an easy trip, and FoJo faces many tests. But he learns to work with Mother Nature to realize his wish for a better future.
