Suffering from severe stomach pain, a young prince finds healing in a magical spring.

A young prince is too shy to attempt courtship. Instead, he seeks solace in overeating which causes him severe stomach pain. A peculiar doctor advises him to drink one glass of water a day from the magical monkey spring. But the spring is a thousand leagues from the palace and the prince must go there alone, on foot, otherwise the water will lose its magical healing abilities.
