In an ancient kingdom called Van Lang, the great King Hung the First ruled wisely. Lieu was a prince by birth but grew up in a village instead of the royal palace. One day, the king ordered a contest for his sons to create an offering for their ancestors during the New Year celebrations. The winner would be appointed heir to the throne.
Lieu had to take part in the contest even though he had no one to help him, no fancy ingredients and no skills. How could Lieu compete with his brothers who had grown up living a luxurious life in the palace?
