An animal menagerie or zoo?
A beautiful village girl marries a king in the rural countryside where wild animals frolic and where palms and frangipanis are aplenty. The married village girl awaits the return of his father while the king returns to his palace, where the Bendahara (Prime Minister) is scheming to marry his own daughter to the king.
