A boy sits on top of hill spinning clouds into beautiful cloth to make two scarves because “enough is enough and not one stitch more.” But a greedy king sees the beautiful scarves and demands the boy keeps spinning the clouds to make clothes for the royal family. 

When the clouds vanish, there is no more rain, and a drought occurs. The princesses conscience leads her to return the woven cloth to the boy who releases it to become clouds once more.
