A Edver no le hace ninguna gracia que lo envíen a Cuba a ver al padre que apenas conoce. Sin embargo, ahora que las leyes de viaje han cambiado y es mucho más fácil reunir a las familias divididas, su mamá piensa que es hora de que padre e hijo pasen tiempo juntos. Edver no se imagina lo que le depara el verano, ¡pero definitivamente no espera conocer a la hermana que ni siquiera sabía que existía! Luza es un año mayor y está muy entusiasmada por conocer a su hermanito, hasta que se da cuenta de cuán diferentes han sido sus vidas. A la busca de cualquier cosa que puedan tener en común, se meten en internet y accidentalmente atraen la atención de un peligroso cazador de animales salvajes. Edver ha luchado contra muchísimos villanos en los videojuegos. Ahora, para salvar la selva que tanto quieren, ¡Luza y él tendrán que encontrar un modo de derrotar a un villano real!

However, now that travel laws have changed and divided families are much easier to reunite, his mom thinks it's time for father and son to spend time together.

In search of anything they have in common, they go online and accidentally attract the attention of a dangerous wild animal hunter. Edver has fought many, many villains in video games. Now, to save the jungle they love so much, he and Luza will have to find a way to defeat a real villain!
