Story Summary

There once was a compassionate king, but his grief over his subject's poverty was easily taken care of by a nightly "forget-me-nut" which wiped away any memory of hardship. That is until his son, the prince, takes pity on a boy freezing outside of his window. Together they discover how to release all of the king's memories and convince him to use his compassion to combat his grief and not the forget-me-nuts.
