Synopsis of Sacks & Guns !!
In the distant future, humanity was forced to live in an underground world known as "The Labyrinth." In this place there are several colonies with different environments, some with very high temperatures and others full of gold and silver, for example. Among them, there is the Pinyin colony, where a nine-year-old girl named Memempuu and her father Gaganbar live. As "workers" seeking to survive, they pilot a large robot that digs for minerals. One day, Memempuu asks her father to go find her mother. Being a "marker", Gaganbar has the most dangerous profession in the colony, which is mapping the labyrinth; but this is also an advantage since he is the only one who knows the dangerous roads outside the colony. With this, both will depart on a possibly one-way trip.
