Set in the small country of Andorra after World War I, Triumph of Love, examines the philosophical battle between emotion and reason. Princess Leonide has fallen in love with Agis, the rightful heir to her usurped throne. Leonide and her servant Corrine disguise themselves as men and sneak into the philosophical retreat in which Agis has taken refuge. Master of the estate Hermocrate, along with his sister Leontine, have not only taught Agis to hate Leonide, but to live by the strict laws of logic and reason. Comedic antics ensue when the disguised Leonide and Corrine recruit estate servants Dimas and Harlequin to help Leonide un-do Hermocrate's teachings and win Agis' heart . In the end, love is triumphant.
