On China lands, a long time ago…
A terrible drought has been raging for three years. Civilizations die, plants and animals disappear …
Far from hell, high in the sky, the heavenly emperor Yuhuang Shangdi celebrates his birthday since 3 days, into drunkenness and good humor.

Yudian, a golden dragon, has a hard time taking part in the party, when he hears the tears of a little girl in the world from below. Curious, the young Celestial being descends on Earth.
He will risk his life to help the human beings.
