Razania, a maid, is worried about her master's son Capuri, who is not interested in eating. He always leaves food on his plate, even though she cooks as best as she could. One day, three little monsters appear because her cooking smells so good. They look hungry, so Capuri gives them his food. They are happy with it and start to eat. Capuri sees the little monsters enjoy eating, which makes him change his mind - he starts to eat. Then, here comes Razania. She sees Capuri eating. She feels so happy and hugs him. Thanks to the little monsters' help, Capuri comes to enjoy eating.
