In a faraway land lives a people who are the politest of any people anywhere. They are ruled by a king who knows the very best way to live a proper life. When the king wants to marry, he knows the rightest way to go about it is to search for her in a distant land, just like his father and grandfather and their ancestors did before him. Yet when he arrives, he observes that the way things are done there is totally different. The king doesn’t keep his wisdom to himself, but boldly informs everyone how they should really be doing things. However, the locals can’t seem to appreciate his advice, and neither is the right woman anywhere to be seen. But when he decides to return home, something incredible happens.
