The elements that rule the world - Air, Fire, Earth and Water - go on their "regular inspection tour" among people. We follow Water, whom people call the Rain Fairy. She travels the land dressed as a poor woman and learns that people have begun thinking mainly about money and that love and goodness are disappearing. When the elements return to the Sun, they call for a severe punishment for mankind. Knowing that people are just people, the Sun hesitates. He likes them despite their faults. Unfortunately, he's outvoted by the elements. The Sun asks the Rain Fairy if she couldn't punish mankind herself and take the rain away from them. Drought torments the land. People have nothing to gather, crops won't grow, the hay is nearly burnt. … But as fairytales go, not all people are completely bad and goodness and love triumph.
