A strange elephant suddenly appears in the City of Tales. All the animals in the City, depending on their capabilities, try to attract the elephant’s attention. They plot to change the size and the place of the elephant’s trunk, its tusk, and its other organs. Despite claiming that they are creating balance and beauty, they despoil them all before the eyes of everyone there. All of a sudden, the elephant finds out that it has lost everything, even his identity, because of being optimistic.
