All possible disasters affect the land. The Duke is convinced that all that needs to be done is to find out who is to blame and everything can be restored. He chooses his ugly daughter to find the culprit and in return she asks to have her books back and to be allowed to travel. The Duke’s other daughter, a beauty, falls in love with a poet and asks him to kill her father so that she can take over leading the country. In a fight outside the city both daughters perish and the poet decides to expose the Duke’s responsibility for their death.
