Deep underground where the murpals are found, a crowd gathers for the greatest singing competition of the year. One young murpal must face his fears and a hostile crowd in order to fulfill a promise. 


A young boy named Lurpal faces a terrible challenge but ultimately learns about self-respect. What matters is the choices he makes not what a crowd of murpals thinks of him. What matters is he learns he has something to offer. He has value he never even considered before.
