Brave little knight realizes that the best way to tame a beast is to find the source of its pain.

In a curious kingdom on top of a forest lives a little knight. His life is easy: during the day, he has fun training flies, and at night, he relaxes in a hammock, befriending the bats. But one day, the village falls under the shadow of a terrifying dragon. Our hero sets off to protect the village from the fearsome dragon, and he manages to save the day with the help of some friends and a dose of kindness.
