Two brothers make their living swindling royals of their valuables through false courtship. In one such scam at Castle Fels, Gai unexpectedly falls in love with Matilda, the younger sister of Princess Griseldis. And in order to keep his younger brother Teo from walking away empty-handed, he tries to steal the king's golden orb from the castle. After an unsuccessful escape, they are banished and Gai is accidentally transformed into a frog. Only true love's kiss can reverse his fate.
