Scotland, 1994. Somewhere in the Scottish highlands a man in a kilt is entertaining his 10-year-old cousin with a tale about princes and princesses. Spain, 1785. Carlota Joaquina, a spoiled young Spanish princess is sent to Lisbon to marry the heir to the Portuguese throne. But instead of the brave and dashing young prince of her imagination, Don Joäo turns out to be timid and cold, preferring flowers and books to women and adventures. Carlota will have to satisfy her passions elsewhere ... "This is the film that might have resulted had Monty Python attempted to recount the history of 18th century Brazil." - Deborah Young, Variety
