Prince Hilarion has been waiting for this day for twenty years. He is about to meet the girl he was betrothed to as a baby. Unfortunately, this girl, Princess Ida, has decided that she does not want to honor the commitment and instead has gone off and started a women's college. In an attempt to woo her, Hilarion, and his friend's Cyril and Florian, are forced to dress up as maidens in order to sneak into the women's compound. Once the 'maidens' are in the compound, various girls attending the college discover the 'maidens' secret. These girls attempt to keep their knowledge secret, but eventually, Princess Ida discovers the intruders. After it looks like violence is sure to erupt, Ida finally relinquishes and agrees to marry Hilarion.
