In the Kingdom of Berbanya, King Fernando had a dream that his two sons Don Pedro(eldest) and  Don Diego would conspire against his youngest son, Don Juan.  While thinking too much about it he became sick.  Healers could not heal him but one suggested that only an adarna bird could save him.  

Don Pedro the eldest brother went on the quest to the mountain of Tabor to look for the adarna bird.  He does find it on a piedras platas tree and falls asleep from the birds singing.  After the Sevent song of the bird, it defacated on him and turned him to stone (kinda like medusa but reversible)

After one year of waiting the king sent out his other son. And then the same thing happened.  He got defacated on and turned to stone.  Now on the  third try  (what a selfish king send out his sons to die, its not logical)   Don Juan also sought after the bird but luckily he met a hermit who gave him the low down on the bird.   The hermit tells teaches him how to capture the bird and how to retrogress his two brothers.   After capturing when the two brothers were restored they started to conspire (which makes the kings dream true)   The two brothers knocked Don Juan out and left him in the woods but luckily the same hermit found him and cured don juan. After that don Juan went back to the kingdom. 

In the kingdom, the two brothers presented the bird to the king but was the bird was unable to heal him.  But when the Don Juan arrived the bird started singing and the king was cured.  The king was very happy but then again the two brothers plotted against him again and while don juan was sleeping the two brother released the bird so that it would look like it was don juan’s  fault.

The three brothers were then sent again on a quest to find the bird (what a waste of time)   They were unable to find the bird but they encountered two beautiful princesses inside a deep well.  (kinda weird) They bailed them out but one of the brothers cut the cord while don juan was climbing and left don juan inside the well. Luckily again don juan had a magical ring lent by don Leonora which kinda fixed everything for him in his ordeal.   On his way back to the kingdom he got lost, He encountered three princesses again and fell in love with one of them lucky for him, No brothers to conspire against him.  He professes his love to one of them and she liked him back.  But there was a hitch, her father the king of the kingdom of crystals was a very possessive king.  But Don Juan, being brave decided to meet the father even he was an evil deceitful person.  The king gives him impossible tasks but Don Juan manages to accomplish them.  The Princess  (dona maria)  warns her that her  father had no intention of giving her away. So they escaped.  The king was hot on their trail and was catching up.  Don Juan had no choice but to leave Dona maria somewhere so he could get help.  

When don juan went back to the kingdom dona Leonora stepped in with a little magic making him forget about dona maria.  A wedding was soon arranged but for some reason dona maria was able to make it to that kingdom and managed to create a stand off between two kingdoms (ala Helen of troy  maybe)  then everything was resolved. Don Juan and Dona Maria were married. And they lived happily ever after.
