In a time where the Fire Nation threatens to destroy the Earth, Water and Air Nation, he has to find the inner strength in order to become the Avatar or the Chosen One. Aang belongs to the Water Nation and is already an expert Water Bender, but now he has to focus all his abilities towards learning how to control the four elements. His first challenge will be to attempt to control the Earth element. With his friends Sokka and Katara he will leave the Water Nation to begin his quest.
