In a beautiful, faraway place, the celebration of the royal wedding between Astrid, the princess of the kingdom, and Pirou, a young apprentice magician, is cut short by the irruption of Malasombra, a sorcerer with a grudge against the king for condemning him to banishment some time ago due to his perfidious advice.
Malasombra turned everyone present into a toad except for Pirou, who managed to repel the spell with his lusty apprentice wizard’s wand, and kidnapped Astrid, as revenge for so many years of suffering in exile.
Pirou could not leave things as they were, so he set out on a desperate search for a way to get his beloved back.
