Princess Marie is taken by Bird of Darkness. Her father, the kind, made a promise that the man who found his daughter would be rewarded with marrying Princess Marie. Twin brothers Soliday and Salacota were total opposite. Soliday wanted to find Princess Marie while Salacato was lazy, fearful, and selfish and wanted no part. With financial help of his grandmother, Soliday decides to find the Princess. Salacota decides to join Soliday at the last minute and they set sail. When they reach the island, Soliday is ready to take on the Bird of Darkness while Salacota stayed back to eat and drink water. After several days, Soliday defeats the Bird of Darkness but has to return to the boat for his ax. He slips and falls and Salacota refuses to help and leaves his brother to go rescue Princess Marie. Salacota and Princess Marie return home but Princess Marie felt like something just was not right and puts the wedding off for one year and one day. One year later, Soliday makes his return home to declare his defeat and he and Princess Marie marry.
