Adam, Mark, and Abi suffer from relentless physical, mental, and emotional abuse at the hands of those meant to protect and love them. Their only respite is by the river, a temporary haven where they can play and forget their troubles, if only for a moment. One day, while walking home from school along the riverbank, they heroically save an otter and her pups. However, their noble act leaves them dirty and wet, and they dread the inevitable punishment awaiting them at home.

In a twist of fate, just as Adam faces another punishment for fleeing school bullies, the family and friends of the otters they rescued intervene. The children’s abusers are subjected to a unique trial and fitting punishment by an indignant Mr. Otter.

The children are then whisked away to a magical realm, embraced by a loving animal family. In this new world, they find the happiness they’ve longed for, but the scars of their past abuse remain. These animals reveal the children’s hidden potential, training them to become Mighty Warriors endowed with extraordinary powers.

Armed with their new abilities and driven by a sense of justice, the trio returns to their grim world to rescue other abused children. Their mission is fraught with challenges, unexpected twists, and encounters with malevolent adults. This tale is a journey of transformation, courage, and the power of kindness in the face of darkness.

Alfie was born in London and was raised in a large household on a large council estate. His first memory of violent physical abuse was between his parents when he was about four years old.


He was subjected to all types of abuse until his teens, then he learned to fight back. He continued to witness abuse well into his adult years and is saddened that children are still suffering and dying at the hands of those who are supposed to love them.


After many years of internal struggle due to his abuse, he’s finally a very happy and contented person.
