This animated children's feature from mainland China tells the story of a little boy whose ostensible father is the ruling monarch. The boy was miraculously born fully grown, from a flower which itself sprang from an egg. His special nature makes him favored by a powerful god, and this alliance comes to his aid when it is most needed. The little boy gets on the wrong side of the evil Dragon King who rules under the sea. He has to use all the wits he has to outsmart and outmaneuver the four fighting dragons commanded by the underwater king, yet that is not enough to defeat them unless the god comes into the picture. It is worth noting that "the picture" is artfully drawn with good animation and backdrops.
