Heir to the throne of Valdina, beautiful Attila vows two things: to do everything in her power to return her beloved sick father, King Sigismund, to health, and to find true love. It seems that her stepmother, the scheming and selfish Queen Margit, has other plans. Desperate to marry Attila as quickly as possible to Prince Otto, a young man with a shadowy past, Queen Margit's eyes are set firmly on the throne for herself. And it seems she will stop at nothing to get her own way and rule Valdina alone. Turning to Father Jozsef, her childhood mentor, Attila agrees to go on a pilgrimage to the Shrine of St. Janos, not only to avoid Prince Otto, but to pray for the king's speedy recovery. Guided by the spirit of her mother and the unconditional love of Father Jozsef, she also fervently prays that she will find a man to love worthy of her royal blood.
