In a make-believe, middle-european kingdom, a vivacious but dim nation young lady works as a singer in a beer garden for her lease cash. In the mean time, the Ruler is confronting bankruptcy for his small country, unless he weds a wealthy but undesirable Ruler of another Middle-European territory. Eventually he takes in the struggling young singer, and they fall in love, despite possible bankruptcy and ruin.



A Restored version was shown at the 2019 UCLA Festival of Preservation.
