Poor Omuninyan. Each day, she must endure harsh mistreatment by her stepmother and stepsister while her father is away. She is forced to cook, clean and do other chores while she is taunted with the name "Ash Girl." When an invitation arrives for a feast hosted by Chief Totwe, Omuninyan is denied the opportunity to attend when she is given the large task of making a big pot and is left behind. While crying, Omuninyan is visited by a wind spirit who magically helps her travel to the feast. The wind spirit requires just one thing of Omuninyan - she must return home before "the new sun strokes the sky." At the feast, Omuninyan captures the eye and heart of Chief Totwe's son, Sibata, during the dance of the young maidens, but she leaves before anyone is able to find out her name and who she is. Only an anklet is left behind. Sibata is intent on finding out who the mysterious young maiden is, and he searches tirelessly for the woman he wants as his bride. Many women try on the anklet, including Omuninyan's stepsister, but it fits no one. When Sibata is told to return to the homestead of Omuninyan's family, he finds Omuninyan there, and she shows that the anklet fits her perfectly. Sibata asks for her hand in marriage, and they live happily ever after.
