Kapitolina (Kapa) the Pug, the best jeweler in the Magic Valley, stops by the library where her friend Fenya is busy writing her next book. Kapa sees a box with a stunningly beautiful crystal on her table, and cannot believe her eyes! It’s the miracle stone of Mayurmi! This stone appears in stories and myths of the Beautiful Valley. When Fenya leaves the library, Kapitolina takes the stone to look at it closer... until the Envious Eyes Bird flies up to it and steals the crystal. Now Kapa and her friends have to find the Mayurmi Stone and return it, at any cost. It really is a challenging task!

What is better in competitions: to win or to lose? In the end, who should Mayurmi belong to? Who is worthy of owning the stone and will never want to help anyone who harbors envy?
