A dramatic Japanese folktale that tells the story of a cruel overlord and a young farmer's elderly mother. The overlord threatens to destroy the farmer's village unless the young lord can perform three seemingly impossible tasks. How the elderly mother accomplishes the tasks and saves the village is a satisfying story brought to life with remarkable full-color paintings.
