When a brother and sister find a missing pouch containing some princely treasure, their lives take an unexpected change of direction. The pouch belongs to the king and, as its finders, Pia and Enzo find themselves thrown into the life of the court. At first Pia and Enzo are in awe of this wonderful place, but they soon find that life there, with everyone's dreams and ambitions not always in tune with what others expect of them, is not so different to the lives the siblings are used to down in a small hut in the village. In this wonderful 'fairy tale' of a story, lives collide, mysteries unfold and people come to realise their dreams.
