a story of ancient telling, under blue sky were only two. Lạc Long Quân and Âu Cơ, met together on Earth.
the ocean bears the hand of father dragon, the face of the deserted Earth, Âu Cơ built up... When they began to love, a hundred eggs were born.
Lạc Long Quân and Âu Cơ began longing for their homes. though they loved each other, they said goodbye. fifty went up to the mountains, fifty down to the deep sea.
sing... together one passionate lullaby. sing... together, of one bloodline, mother and father.
