Learning a language is like falling in love. But when this great linguist’s love for a princess was denied, he just fell in love with her 75 times more. The film is about the remarkable life of a poor priest’s son – Georg Julius Justus Sauerwein and his life-long love for Princess Elisabeth of Wied.
