The mistress of the castle is a moody, domineering queen, while her clever and cheerful look-a-like Hanne works busily in the smithy. The women are so similar that they could easily be mistaken, and this gives the court jester an idea. The grouchy queen wakes up one morning in the smithy, where she must clean and peel potatoes, and the blacksmith's wife wakes up surrounded by lace and feather-down and is able to put injustice to right. It only takes 24 hours for the queen to learn her lesson.
