Not sure what type of information you are looking for, but the story is about a princess who falls in love and wants a relationship with someone her father does not consider good enough for her.  He has a rule of justice where the accused goes into an arena and chooses between one of two doors.  If he picks one door there will be a beautiful woman behind it that he will have to marry immediately.  Behind the second door is a vicious tiger that will kill him.  The young man is counting on the princess to signal him which door to pick.  The conflict is whether or not the princess would rather see him dead by the tiger or let him live with another woman.  You can find a great deal of information at the links below.
