Summary
The King complains that his son must hurry and find a bride from amongst the beautiful women of the Palace. But the prince is bored by empty beauty. The Prince insists on marrying a woman who is smart, and establishes a story-telling contest (where the winner must tell a story which begins and ends with the impossible) to find the cleverest woman in the kingdom. The woman he falls for is not "beautiful" by traditional standards and wears simple clothing, but enchants the prince with her creativity and wit as she weaves a story with endless surprises. The storyteller finds a city atop a palm tree, steps into a market inside a watermelon grown on a magical field, and, after an endless series of surprises, is ultimately "shot from a cannon" for pulling the tail off a donkey (a false conviction by a zany judge), landing in the castle in front of the Prince.
