  • Overview
    In this theatrical tale that draws its inspiration from the Far East, a widowed weaver creates a beautiful tapestry which is then stolen by his daughters before it could be finished. The eldest daughter, feeling regret for betraying her father, takes it upon herself to retrieve the tapestry and return it to him. In a heartwarming turn, the daughter's ensuing adventure explores the themes of spiritual growth, maturity and filial piety (respecting one's parents).
