Mari-Cha Lion, the long lost glorious guardian back in the mid-11th century, rests in the museum day by day and no one ever hears it roar…

“I want to become a majestic lion in the forest!” A lion cub is determined to be the most marvelous guardian in the world. It decides to embark on a journey in search of the legendary Mari-Cha Lion.

But Mari-Cha Lion has disappeared… It has set off to look for its missing brother…

Will the little lion and Mari-Cha Lion meet? Finally, who roars?
