Upset by their ingratitude, the Heavenly Emperor punishes the people by bringing a three-year long drought upon them! The kind-hearted Dragon Princess feels sorry for the farmers. In her attempt to help them, she angered the Heavenly Emperor who sent heavenly guards to capture her. Will the farmers be able to save the Dragon Princess?
