The Story concerns two neighboring fathers who put up a wall between their houses to ensure that their children fall in love, because they know children always do what their parents forbid. After the children do fall in love, they discover their fathers' plot and they each go off and experience things in the world. Having learned from the world and made a heart-felt
decision, they return to each other and the love they had.
