"It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness."
– Chinese proverb
After condemning a magical healer to death, Princess Savitri is cursed that her true love will die. Over a decade later, the curse claims her true love, Prince Satyavan. Savitri realizes that there is still hope and embarks on an epic journey to the Underworld to convince Lord Yama, the Lord of Death to bring Satyavan back to life. She is assisted by Kaeia, her mercenary guide with a mysterious past, and JinJie, her childhood best friend who harbors secret feelings towards her. Together, they brave many perils in their quest to reach the Underworld, but they soon realize that the true journey lies within.
