Yokki is a young boy with a knack for telling imaginative stories. He belongs to a large family of travelers. When the livelihood of his family begins to be unsuccessful, Yokki lifts their spirits as they sit around the campfire and he tells them the stories about the Parno Gry. This mystical white horse can fly the family to lands where work is plenty and harvests are bountiful. This story helps spread cheer throughout the family—until one day the Parno Gry actually comes to visit.
