Croak, the King & a Change in the Weather

Croak, the King & a Change in the Weather

Croak is the story of a greedy and self-centered King, whose indulgent lifestyle in the luxury of his sealed-off palace is at the expense of his downtrodden subjects outside. When his kingdom is faced with previously unknown types of weather which threaten the supply of luxuries, the King is forced for the first time ever to go outside the palace gates.
