King Halonree and Queen Loella of Isabella lived in the mountains in what we now know as California. Their knowledgeable yet bullying advisor spoils their dream of ruling a happy kingdom. Litham, the advisor is also a wizard. When he is angry, he can use his power to eclipse the sun during the day. Furthermore, Litham talks rudely to the villagers. The King must summon the courage to confront his advisor before the people decide to move on. However, King Halonree is afraid of losing the sun and his kingdom. This is why the wizard's magical power is King Halonree's worst fear. This lack of courage keeps the King from confronting his advisor as a King should.

The villagers decided to challenge Halonree to take a risk and stop Litham from bullying them. The King responds by taking a very unique approach. His approach demonstrates that he values kindness and unity. A journey of self-discovery unfolds for the King, Queen, and his people.
