Argument
The King's palace has been robbed of everything, and he is penniless. He strongly urges his daughter to marry Wallflower, who is very rich, but she refuses to do so. A party of High School students visit the valley of Hilo on a botanizing trip, two of whom meet the princess and her friend, Rose, and fall in love with them, everything ending happily for them. The villain's sins are discovered, and, in the words of Gilbert and Sullivan's immortal opera The Mikado, "His punishment fits the crime".
