BUSOM presents a risquΓ© yet heartwarming
tale of companionship, trust and progress. At the dawn of mankind, one tribe of cavepeople gets by under the wise leadership of Jemilla, the Peacemaker. Jemilla taught her
people to express themselves, rather than bashing each others' heads with rocks and eating each others' babies. But one member of the tribe doesn't seem to fit in: Zazzalil. She's always trying to invent things to make life easier… for herself. While out hatching
her latest scheme, Zazzalil stumbles upon the most important discovery in history. One that will pit her tribe against wooly mammoths, saber-toothed tigers, and change the world forever. She'll travel from omega to alpha, and become… the Firebringer!
