The farmer tells his mother about the impossible task's. The mother smiles. She uses her wisdom and told the farmer how to solve the task's. The farmer told Lord Higa how to solve the task's. Lord Higa wondered how the farmer knew how to solve the tasks. He asked the farmer how he knew. The farmer couldn't lie so he told Lord Higa that he has been hiding his old mother and that her mother is how he knew how to solve the task's.
A Long time ago in Japan, an old mother and a young farmer live in a small village ruled by a cruel lord named Lord Higa
Whoever turns 71 must be left in the mountains to die!
The young farmer's mother turned 71 and she must go die in the mountains. The farmer decides to dig a hole in his kitchen and hide his mother there. She lives in the hole for 2 years.
You must do these tasks do keep your village!
A cruel lord wants to take over the village. He gives Lord Higa 3 impossible task's that nobody in the village can do except for the farmer's mother.
Don't worry my son. The 3 tasks are very simple .
Mother! A cruel lord has come to rule our village if we don't do 3 impossible tasks!
Elderly people will now be treated with respect and share with us the wisdom of their years!
Lord Higa decides that elderly people,like the farmer's mother, should be treated with respect and honor they deserve. Also, elderly people will no longer be left in the mountains to die.
