Bored, bored, bored. It's all Princess Patricia Priscilla can think as her 16th birthday approaches. Its less than a week before the Birthday Ball, where she will choose her husband from a group of unappealing suitors.
But things around the kingdom get pretty interesting when Princess Patricia Priscilla disguises herself as a peasant and starts attending the village school. She may not be spending her days in the comfort of the castle, clothed in silk, but at least life in the village is fun. And it doesn't hurt that the new schoolmaster is young and handsome.
