Once upon a time, there was deep friendship. As big as a magical kingdom. And the friendship was able to carry mountains over the Moon, but also to conquer evil and illness. The lead character Júlia sets out with her impassive friend Martin for an adventure journey. Along the route she attempts to help her friend Mária. They want to find and free the trapped and the concealed hidden happy end to all fairy-tales! Evil forces put a spell on it. What kind of fairy-tale would it be without a happy end? During trials with the evil Queen Belladona and her treacherous servant Koloman they are aided by courage, playfulness and imagery, trust, a sense of justice, and love.

Running time: 2 hrs with one interval
