Gina Farina has a mind of her own and refuses to be bullied. In the end she gains the respect of the Prince and the people of Mintz. This program is based on Nancy Patz's story, Gina Farina and the Prince of Mintz, which is a fairy tale about a strong-willed young woman, Gina, who is known for baking mouthwatering pies, and the Prince of Mintz, who demands she bake her pies for him alone. Gina has a mind of her own and refuses and a battle of wills begins. Children will love to learn how the two reach a compromise, providing a happy and surprising ending.
