A foolish king decides to test his daughters by asking how much they love him. The youngest, Greta, answers “as much as salt” – and is banished. Suddenly alone, Greta succeeds in making her own way in the world AND teaches the king a lesson about love. Based on a very old English fairy tale, which inspired Shakespeare’s play, King Lear.
