When a great African king desires a wife, only the most perfect maidens in the land are invited to meet him.

Along the way, the two girls encounter a number of mysterious situations that unknowingly test their courage, kindness and strength of spirit. Combining authentic African drumming, powerful choreography and thrilling original music, the splendor of Zimbabwe comes to life on stage!
