Hired to educate the 58 children of King Mongkut of Siam, English schoolteacher Anna Leonowens does something that women of the Victorian age simply never do: the young widow travels thousands of miles with her son to a land that is largely unknown to the Western world. She arrives in Siam knowing little of King Mongkut, apart from the fact that his people revere him as a god. She soon realizes that her prejudices about the "uncivilized" East are more than matched by the ruler's own preconceptions about the West - and particularly this impertinent English woman. But over time, Anna discovers that Mongkut is a true man of vision who is leading Siam to take its place among the nations of the modern world. And Mongkut recognizes that Anna has shined a light not only on him and his family, but also on Siam itself.
