Once upon a time in a magic kingdom lived Opal, a young princess who is the source of all the magic. If she's happy, the kingdom thrives. If she's sad, the kingdom dies. All is not well so the great Iroko, guardian of the kingdom, sets forth to investigate. What dire secret within the royal household is causing the trouble? Graced with a rich Afro-Caribbean sensibility and profound psychological undercurrents, this sumptuous animated fairy tale handles childhood trauma and adult themes (anxiety, incest, psychoanalysis) in rare, strange and optimistic ways.

“A unique, mesmerizing animated fantasy for young and old alike!” Fantasia Festival
