“The Legend of Parvana Lake” tells a story about a beautiful Princess who decided to choose a husband by setting a challenge for the knights to find the Eternal Flame and bring it to her. But as the years pass, the Princess waits and waits looking through the windows of her castle, but none of the men come back… When the Princess loses her hope she starts crying. Her tears flood the valley and the castle, creating a lake that is as clear as a child’s tear. What happened to all those brave men and why didn’t they come back?…
