Imagine a society where laughing and singing are banned, where colours, music and joy are just not permitted…
There once lived a king in just such a Grey City who prohibited his subjects from doing just about everything. He even locked his own daughter up because she sang one day under the spell of a violin played by a gypsy who had wandered into the city by chance. His heart was so cold that by the time his heart melted the violin had lost its magic… However, just before the violin played its last note, the king began to sing and everything changed forever…
