Alo is a short-sighted farm boy that must follow his village’s tradition to climb a mountain, a climb that he is extremely unprepared for.
This could be good, even without the duck elements. Maybe it’s his task to carry a duck to the top of the mountain. It’s something his people have done ever since they settled the valley. By “short-sighted,” do you mean near-sighted?
At this point, you should ask yourself what happens if he does make it to the top and what happens if he doesn’t make it to the top. Then compare those two lists and see which one will give you the more interesting visuals.
