A young boy asks to see the king because he has a question about shadows. The king reluctantly permits the boy to come into his presence and listen to his question. The boy's questions (yes, he had more than one question!) require the assistance from the king's wise men. Their answers propel the king to venture on a quest to learn about the only king who has no shadow.
