And yet, Yuku is strongly motivated to reach the distant peaks. Once she gets the legendary flower, her grandma will gain happiness and eternal light. Unexpectedly, the little mouse will find help in ukulele songs and riddles that she heard during the evenings spent with her family in the castle cellars.
