Three monkeys hoped to find something to light up their dark cave. They tried to grab the moon but it was too high to reach. Then they tried to get the moon appearing on the surface of the lake. With a gourd scoop they thought they successfully got the shining moon. However when they accidentally dropped the scoop the water spilled and the moon was gone.
