They are three princesses, descended from a myth, whose cultural differences didn’t prevent them from finding friendship.

Minju, born under the confusing sign of the rabbit, is the Asian princess of spells and magic, although these powers offer her no help in the search for her water dragon.

Ayse, the cop, is the Turkish princess of justice. Confronted with the ultra-macho Turkish gangsters surrounding her, she has developed a hard-core toughness. She uses her powers to keep the aggressive men at bay, which ensures that her own unfulfilled passions remain hidden. As a cop, her time is devoted to nabbing the infamous Oezbalik brothers, who rule their Turkish neighborhood with an iron fist.

The ice-cold Nico, the princess of the dream-world, works in a lab, where she monitors patients with sleep disorders. A lonely creature of the night, whose ability to love is frozen somewhere deep within. She is far more comfortable with the emotional distance of her sleeping patients than the men of the awaking world.

Now if only they could break through their emotional walls and find intimacy...
