The Ramayana, an epic celebrated across Asia, tells the trials and triumphs of Rama and Sita. In the story, the couple spends a considerable amount of time in the woods while in exile, encountering many enchanted creatures. Among them are an eagle, a bear, a sea monster, a crow, a frog, a squirrel, a golden deer, Hanuman, one of the most important characters, and his band of monkeys.

In this children-friendly production, Sita recounts her adventures with the animals of the magical forest through storytelling and dance.
