Miri lives in a small village on Mount Eskel and assumes that she will work in the local quarry like most people in town. But the girls on the mountain are surprised to learn that the prince of their country will choose his wife from their village. Every eligible girl in the village is sent down the mountain to attend a school to prepare them for life as a princess. The girls are completely cut off from their lives and families by a strict teacher and heavy snow. Some of the girls are working hard to be chosen by the prince while others, like Miri, are discovering themselves and their own abilities for the first time.
