Laden with laughs, this classic romantic tale follows the adventures of Ann, the Crown Princess of an unspecified country, who has embarked on a much publicised journey of several European countries.
While in Rome, she finds herself unable to bear the strictly scheduled and supervised life and longs to break free. Leaving the embassy secretly, with the hopes of experiencing Rome on her own, she finds herself in the company of an expatriate American reporter, Joe Bradley.
When Joe doesn't recognise her, Ann takes on an alias, Anya Smith, and enjoys a magical adventure with him, to the extent that they both find themselves falling in love with each other. How will their respective futures unfold? Is there any possibility for a royal princess to find love with an ordinary man?
