When Mumu the phoenix is carried away on the wind, peace is also taken from all beings living in the lush forests of the Land of Today. Koko travels to the phantom lands of illusion, the Land of Yesterday and the Land of Tomorrow, to find her best friend. Along the way, she helps relieve the suffering in the hearts of two gatekeepers: Panda, who harbors a childhood trauma from being different, and Pupa, who has anxiety about emerging as a butterfly. At the end of a long journey, she realizes that the phoenix never truly disappeared but exists in every being in the Land of Today, including herself.

Inspired by Buddhist Zen philosophy, this story of a little girl’s adventure in a fantasy realm symbolizes an inner journey toward freedom from suffering. It emphasizes the essence of true happiness in the present moment and the interconnected nature of the universe.
