Although his kingdom is prosperous, Shah Bahram is restless, haunted by the portraits of seven princesses that he saw when he was young. And so he builds seven extravagantly beautiful pavilions, each a different color, and invites the princesses to come live in them. The wise princesses tell the shah stories that teach him the virtues that a ruler, and indeed every human being, must cultivate - truth, patience, perseverance, forgiveness, humility, wisdom and love.
