WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Centred around two warring kings and the earlier marriage, in babyhood, of their respective children, one of the kings is due to produce the bride this very day. Instead he arrives with his three hulking sons, saying that his daughter Ida has renounced men and is running an exclusive women's university. This is a wonderful satirical romp through the women's movement and includes knights, cross-dressing nobles and repressed maidens who are incarcerated in the university, which any man would enter on pain of death.
