The Chieftress, a friendly monarch who lives with her three Lieutenants in a home, hidden away in a cloud. Always dressed in her crown and her big slippers, The Chieftress would like to leave the house and discover the world and its blue sky. But she does not dare, she is too afraid of the outside. Especially since her three Lieutenants, these odd gangling military butlers, keep warning her against the world behind the cloud with its myriad of birds, prophets of doom. So she keeps on living her daily well-oiled routine... until the day when, accidentally, she provokes an opening in the cloud!
