This delightful 18th-century romantic comedy is filled with all the confusions and complexities of love. Princess Leonide's world turns upside down when she falls in love with a young man who can rightfully usurp her kingdom. Unfortunately, her love interest is being tutored by an over-rational philosopher who hates love and has taught the young man to hate women. So Leonide and her maid, Corine, dress up as men, invade the phiolosopher's estate and try to prove to the men that love conquers all.
