The Royal Family want to find the perfect bride for their son. They pile mattresses on a pea and invite all the fair princesses to spend a night upon their wild construction, but each princess proves too thick-skinned to feel the pea. The Royals are ready to throw in the towel until a lost and tired peasant girl finds herself an unknowing participant in their test.
