Two ancient sisters play on a misunderstanding to attract the attention of an erotomaniac king, always hungry for flesh A king organises a competition to find a husband for his daughter counting on the fact that none of the suitors will pass the test he has arranged, so that his daughter won't leave him and the tight corners of their castle.
