In this classic tale from ancient Vietnam, two gods — the god of land and the god of the sea — struggle in endless conflict. Old Fairy and Dragon King, mother and father of mankind, devise a cunning plan to deal with these renegade gods and save the world from destruction…their secret weapon? Love!
Upon seeing the Princess, both gods are smitten — but to win her, they must travel to the ends of the earth (and beyond) to find 3 magical animals. Back home, the Princess — who wants to rule on her own, defying tradition — must resist her father’s plans and the advances of a wealthy, power-hungry suitor. And when the final showdown comes, it’s going to take everything she’s got to bring order and balance to her country…and to the universe!
