Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - volny.cz - dunaj.sk - bhe.cz - webpark.cz: «A young prince, son of king Jindřich, is to marry daughter of king Dobromysl. However, he makes off during a journey to Dobromysl and later reaches the king's castle, where he in secret wants to learn something about his future wife. He meets a girl, who turns out to be the princess, and is subsequently prisoned in a dungeon. The princess doesn't know that he is the prince and she falls in love with him. Since she wants to marry him, the only way how to achieve it is to pretend that she is sad and she will offer her hands only to a man, who will make her happy (to him). However, then she finds out that the boy in the prison, who is to be soon executed, is a prince, and his momentary situation... Another (third) fairy-tale of Bořivoj Zeman, not so successful like his previous ones, but still exceptionally good and filled with beautiful music composed by Jan Hammer, who later emmigrated and became a respected music composer even in the West...».
