But her brother, Susano, god of the sea and storms, is jealous of his sisters position. In fear of Susanos temper, Amaterasu hides in a cave, plunging the world into darkness. The other gods and goddesses must come up with a clever plan to lure Amaterasu from her hiding place and restore order to the world.
