Still image from Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters

Mufaro lives with his two beautiful daughters in a small African village. Manyara is ill-tempered and self-centered, while her sister Nyasha is her opposite in many ways. When the king announces he's seeking a wife, Manyara's selfishness comes to light. Kind, gentle Nyasha is chosen as queen, and her sister becomes a servant. A Cinderella-type story based on the Caldecott Honor Book by John Steptoe.
