Peter and Anne live in a struggling Upper Lusation weavers' village and would get married if they weren't so poor. Anne's father tells them that things used to be different when the village had a magic golden weaving shuttle that made everyone's work much easier.

 

Peter decides to go on a quest to recover the shuttle. When he finally finds it, he gives it up to gain a pile of gold and gemstones for himself. This new-found wealth makes him arrogant and cold, and Anne must set off to look for the golden shuttle...
