This beautiful Cinderella story comes from Indonesia and is full of delightful twists and turns. When Damura is sent to do the washing in the river, she loses her stepmother’s best sarong into the water. She is distraught, but some surprising help is at hand if only Damura is brave enough to accept it! When later the village chief invites Damura’s family to a feast in honour of his son, Damura’s courage is once again tested as her new friend offers to help her to go in spite of her stepmother’s scheming. Will Damura find the happiness she deserves, or will her jealous stepmother find a way to ruin everything?
