King Ferdinand of Navarre and his friends vow celibacy for three years in order to devote themselves to scholarly pursuits. They forswear women for this period in order to keep their minds solely focused on learning. Unfortunately for them, they have forgotten that the Princess of France and her ladies are scheduled to visit on diplomatic business – when they meet, romantic chaos ensues as their vows are tested.
