As winter falls early on the kingdom, the ogre of the mountains kidnaps Molly Gingerbread, the pretty princess.

With the help of two friends, a grumpy hedgehog and a fearful elephant, Leon launches himself in a sequence of unexpected and fearless adventures. He will face all the danger, will deliver the princess and will find his way back home again..
