The Monkey King who was born from a magic stone, has been imprisoned underneath a mountain for five centuries for his mischef in the heavens. One day, the Goddess Quan Yen told Monkey that the Monk Tripitaka will set him free and Monkey will join him on a pilgrimage from China to India. The next day, Tripitaka came and set Monkey free, and the two started their Journey to the west.
