Horace, the son of a rich merchant, loses all his money. But then he finds a magic trunk that can fly! It takes him to a far away country, where he lands on a castle and meets the beautiful princess Doris. They plan to get married.
Everything in Horace's life is perfect - or is it?
If only Horace wasn't so silly!

|Mrs W:||This is my dog, Joris|
|Horace:||Tell me about Princess Doris. - is she very beautiful?|
|Mrs W:||Well yes, she is a princess. She is very beautiful. But you can’t see her.|
|Horace:||I can’t see her? Why not?|
|Mrs W:||Because she is in the castle. And she never comes out.|
|Horace:||The princess is in the castle and she never comes out. Why?|
|Mrs W:||You said this was the last question.|
|Horace:||Oh - yes, all right. Sorry.|
|Mrs W:||Oh, all right, one more question. Joris… why doesn’t the princess ever come out of the castle?|
|Mrs W:||You understand?|
|Horace:||Er... not quite.|
|Mrs W:||Oh dear. Joris, the silly man wants to know, why doesn’t the princess ever come out of the castle?|
|Mrs W:||That’s right - love. Well done, Joris, who’s a good little doggie?|
|Mrs W:||Yes, love. A prophet said that the princess will be very unhappy because of love. So she never comes out of the castle.|
