Lotte’s family gets a new member when sweet Roosi is born. The sisters find two professors on the beach searching for ancient folk songs for a competition. The top prize would be assigned to the one that finds the dragons’ song. However, no one believes that dragons actually exist – nobody has ever seen them. Naturally the girls are determined to find these mythical creatures.

 

Under the family’s turnip field Roosi encounters some gentlemanly moles, whose ancestor has found a way to the land of the dragons. After coming across an inventor of strawberries that grow on a spruce and a magnificent opera house, the girls end up in a land that is about to be abandoned by its residents due to drought of the once-so-fertile land. Lotte and Roosi learn that the aridity is caused by a conflict among the dragons. If only the dragons could get their argument settled, the villagers would get their precious land back and the professors would get their song.
