Dao is an old farmer.

He is dying.

He wants his two sons to care for the farm.

They grow grapes on the farm.

The farmer tells his son there is treasure hidden on the farm.

The two sons look for the treasure. They dig in the ground on the farm.

The sons never find the gold.

But all the digging helps the grape vines.

Many more grapes grow on the vines.

The two sons learn a lesson from their father.

They learn that working hard is important. They get rich by working hard.
