The Wizard, in order to entertain himself and his wife, invents fairy tales. The heroes of fairy tales come to life, come to his house and begin to live their own lives. Many years ago, the Wizard came up with a "reverse fairy tale": he turned the bear into a man, and decided that man would return to its original state when the princess fell in love with him and kissed him. And so the young man - a former bear - returns to the Wizard and meets a girl in his house, whom he really liked. To his horror, she turned out to be a princess; The Wizard made it so that the King, who was ride passing by with his daughter and retinue, went to Wizard's estate.
