Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own.

But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?
