A boy on a quest to save his village from a group of evil people who are determined to destroy it.
REDLAND, Dry District tells a story of how a group of evil people takes control of a village and slowly starts to destroy it by distributing contaminated water to the villagers. A village boy realizes this and embarks on a mission to thwart the evil plan and find clean water supply. His mission becomes even more critical when more villagers fall sick and die. He must work fast before the whole village is wiped out.
