Sasso unfolds a simple but grand fable about an irresistible force meeting an immovable object. The protagonists are the Grand Prince of the Kingdom of Midnight, and the Grand Princess of the Kingdom of the Desert. Each decides to follow the advice of a roving minstrel and travel to see the other’s land. But each is too haughty to make the first move to solve their mutual problems, causing God to be sad. Eventually, both the Prince and the Princess turn, petrified feet first, into mountains, still unwilling to take the first step. Luckily, this is not where the story ends.
