The singing, rhyming citizens of Hamelin hope to win a competition with rival towns for royal recognition.  To this end, the mayor outlaws play, which is a bit hard on the children, and refuses to help a rival town when it's flooded.  But rats, seen only as shadows , fleeing the flood, invade Hamelin in droves.  A magical piper, whose music only children, and rats, can hear, strikes a bargain.  But once the rats are gone, the Mayor and council renege on the agreement, to their subsequent regret.
