At the foot of Mount Fuji lives an old gardener with a terrible secret. While the emperor of Japan tries to discover why his young bride has lost the joy of living and all the fountains in the imperial garden have started crying, four ninja rabbits, representing the four elements of earth, water, air and fire, embark on a journey that will take them from the tranquility of the garden to the top of the world. Along the way, they encounter witches, sorcerers, a fierce dragon and envoys from another planet.
