One night an airship travels though the clouds. On board are Sheeta, owner of the
blue levitation stone, and Muska, the government agent who abducted her. Suddenly
and without warning, Dola and her gang of air pirates attack the airship. Like
Muska, they too want Sheeta and her stone. The pirates invade the ship, and during
the ensuing chaos, Sheeta manages to knock Muska unconscious. The pirates break into
Sheeta's room, and she tries to hide clinging to the outside of the ship. However,
she loses her grip and falls into the night sky.
As the unconscious Sheeta hurtles toward the ground, the levitation stone emits a
mysterious light slowing Sheeta's descent. From a small mining town (Slag's Ravine),
a young boy named Pazu sees the light of the stone descending from the sky and runs
to investigate. Upon reaching the mineshaft, he reaches out to catch the falling
girl. To his amazement, she appears weightless. That is, until the stone stops
glowing... Pazu decides to take her back to his home.
