Once there was a soldier who had served his king faithfully for many years. At the end of the war, however, the king no longer needs his loyal servant. He sends him away, with no money and food, an old and tired man. Well, by good fortune, the soldier happens upon a magic blue light in his travels. With the help of a little dwarf, summoned by the smoke from the blue light, the soldier sets out to teach his king a valuable lesson in fair play and justice.
