Esha is a farmwoman struggling to save for retirement while she gradually transforms into a goat. But her retirement fund slips away when a phoenix steals her priceless heirloom knife. Desperate Esha forges a deal with a back-alley diplomat, and the two women journey to find the wild bird. With tact and translation magic, they might retrieve Esha's knife — and help the phoenix with her own debts.
