"Once upon a time a queen decided to recover a sacred necklace that had belonged to one of her ancestors". This necklace, she thought, would restore harmony and prosperity to her people. Once upon a time there was a scientist, a great expert in saving ecosystems, who worked to reintroduce lions to his country. Once upon a time there was a young orphan who refused to abandon the lion he was raised with.
