A wonderful story from a master storyteller of a runaway boy who can hear strange noises in the night and who seems to be the only person who has noticed that the moon is missing from the starry river of the sky. Things take shape when a strange beautiful woman comes to stay at the almost deserted Village of the Clear Sky. Can she help with kidnappings, giant toads and a missing mountain? Her tales and those of our hero are skillfully woven together in this modern retelling of Chinese folklore.
