The padishah's son is sick with loneliness, despite his family's riches. His dearest wish is to be best friends with the Silent Princess. But the Silent Princess sees no reason to talk to anyone. She has sworn to befriend only the person who can convince her to break her silence. With the help of his magical mouse companion, can the padishah's son persuade the Silent Princess to speak - and be his friend?
