Father Lion imposes strict rules on children, in order to protect them from the dangers of the forest.

The rebellious nature of the son Sinhabahu confronts the strict conditions of his father, and finally escapes to civilization, with his mother and the sister, in search of the royalty they inherit.

The Lion invades the villages, defeating the royal soldiers, and searching for his lost family. As the invaders are unstoppable, the king heralds rewards for killing the leader of the invaders.
