The Queen orders her children Prince and Princess to find spouses. They use the ancient method of shooting an arrow in order to locate their soul mates. The Princess’ arrow hits a frog that is really a man under a spell. But the Man Frog has a pessimistic outlook on love and marriage and is not willing to marry the princess. Matters complicate as the royals cannot agree on a solution and the local witch loses her temper and turns everyone into frogs.
