After uncovering a statue of the legendary Monkey King, a girl needs to release this ancient God from his stone prison. To do this, she must first find his golden crown, a crown that has fallen into the hands of Demons. Having released the Monkey King, Tripitaka is shocked to find him indifferent to the Scholar's mission. Struggling to keep him on side, and still being pursued by Demons, she finds help in the unlikeliest of places. When Monkey and Sandy find themselves prisoners to Princess Locke, an escaped Tripitaka must convince Pigsy to abandon his mistress and help her rescue the two Gods. As the heroes set off to the Western Mountains they are intercepted by a gang of rebel bandits, who worship the legend of the Monkey King. When the leader discovers Tripitaka can control the crown he plans to capture Monkey. Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy are glamoured by a mystical shamanic Demon and taken to a strange prison called the Breaking Ground. As Monkey travels further into his past Tripitaka must act quickly before he is lost forever. Using the sutra, she is able to find a way to go after Monkey, and in doing so unravels the mystery of his imprisonment. As Tripitaka, Monkey, Pigsy and Sandy flee from the Shaman and his Demonic henchman, they seek shelter in a sprawling forest. Tripitaka leaves the quest to go in search of her mother, but Sandy won't let her travel alone, and the two journey to the North Water. As Monkey and Pigsy hide in plain sight within the walls of Davari's palace, Tripitaka realises why Davari is so determined to translate the Sacred Scrolls. Can she stop him completing the translation before it's too late?
