Fire and Ice has all the elements of a classical tale -- kings, queens, knights -- but it also comes with some innovations: the old hellish beast has turned into a dragon, while Prince Charming, or the hero who saves the day, is now embodied by a princess. Here's the story in a nutshell: a prosperous kingdom is attacked by a dragon that destroys everything in its path. The king thinks there is no hope and he is preparing to admit defeat, but his daughter, Luisa, with the help of a knight, Gabriel, manages to save the land.
