It's Christmas Eve and the palace is in turmoil. The next day is not only Christmas, but the wedding day of the beautiful (but spoiled) Princess and the handsome (but dumb as a bag of rocks) Prince Valiant. The problem: the Princess doesn't want to marry a stupid prince. Desperate to find a way out of the marriage, she disguises herself as a maid, and seeks the advice of Watt the Witch, who sends her on a quest to find three magical gifts that will allow her to escape her wedding.
