A touching tale teaching little people that sometimes we use sacrifice our dreams for something better, a greater purpose and the reward to feel alive.

This stoic, stone lion saves 2 young children giving them a chance at having a future life by giving up his once chance to follow his dream.

Touching and somewhat sad, a meaningful story.
