A long long time ago, the twin planet of the earth existed beyond the sun. In the planet were living human beings like us and their civilization prospered as they were in harmony with numerous gods and goddesses of natural beings. But as the revolution of the planet around the sun slowed down, it became more distant from the sun and everything in the planet started to freeze. The people on the twin planet decided to go into the last forest left on the planet to implore the gods of trees, birds and iron to prevent their planet from growing more distant from the sun.
