One day a huntsman was wandering around in the woods. He stumbled upon an old lady and his good, kind heart could let the woman go without him helping her. What she gave him in return was more than one could imagine. She showed him the way to a magical tree where nine birds were fighting for a cloak. It was not an ordinary cloak, nor the birds were as all the others. If the huntsman shot among them, he would get the wishing cloak and after swallowing the heart of one of the birds, a coin would magically appear on his pillow every morning. He followed the wise woman’s words and it all happened indeed. But fate met him with an evil witch and her daughter. Will he manage to keep the bird’s heart and the cloak or the evil will prevail?
