It is 1862 in Siam when English widow Anna Leonowens and her young son arrive at the royal palace in Bangkok, having been summoned by the King to serve as a tutor to him many children and wives. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the west, and he seeks Anna’s assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and, eventually, respect one another in this unique love story.
