Once upon time, the devil made a terrible mirror which showed beautiful things as ugly and ugly things as beautiful.

One day, the mirror shattered into small pieces and it fell from the sky. One small piece got in the eye of a little boy named Kai and it also penetrated his heart. Kai suddenly turned into a very cold juvenile boy. On one snowy day the dark and ruthless Snow Queen took Kai away. Then Greda, a good friend of Kai, went on an adventure looking for Kai. This song is based on this fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson.

During her journey, Greda got a lot of help from humans and animals but her biggest strength for was her kindness and pure feelings. Sometimes as described in the devil’s mirror, people’s pure hearts become dark with jealousy and envious of others.

Just as Greda continued her search with Kai in her mind, if we have clean and honest hearts, we can excel at anything we do.

The scenes of this composition are developed in the following 3 main events; appearance of the mirror, Greda’s adventure searching for Kai, and both of them holding hands and walking back to their village.
