Storyboard Description

Long ago, in a very olden time, there was once a King who used an arena he had built to justify the prisoner's fate who he had submitted. There, they were faced with two doors, with the option of only one, behind which, were either a vicious tiger, that would attack without hesitation, or a lady that they would be married to. Essentially, it was a fifty percent chance to be confronted by either of the two. It did not matter whether they truly deserved to be imprisoned, or if they were already married. The King cared deeply for his daughter, the princess, and was content with everything until he found out about his daughter's secretive love affair with one of his fellow courtiers.
