Odette and Odile are two sisters, Princesses from the royaume of Dragaice, who are five and six years old respectively. They are the daughters of the king and queen of Dragaice.
Odette, the older sister, posseses powers that heal animals.
Together, they are enjoying this magic power in the gardens of the castle.
But one day Odile, who has no magic power, realizes that her jealousy is growing towards her sister.
The two sisters are moving away from each other more and more.
From then on, they do not play together anymore.
Several years later, the two sisters, Odette and Odile, are teenagers.
Odette became the queen of animals and Odile became the queen of the night.
The animals play with each other in perfect harmony, the chicks with the fox, the fish with the cat, the kangaroos with the python etc …
Odette notices that her kingdom is getting darker and is worried.
She asks for help from the lions who do not pay much attention to her.
Several animals begin to disappear and Odette understands that all this is the fault of her sister Odile and she tries in vain to save her animal friends. Henceforth, all her kingdom is covered by a great black shadow and her friends do not recognize it anymore.
Tchaikovsky’s music echoes throughout the kingdom until it becomes a diabolical chorus.
Odette is exhausted and feels lost herself, but when everything seems lost she remembers her friends and she discovers another much stronger power in her.
Odile can not do anything anymore, she is beaten!
The sun reappears, the animals find their kingdom and Odette finds her sister.
Jealousy has disappeared to give way to love!
