In Anna and the King a lady name Anna went to Thailand to taught the King's children he had seventy-five children and the youngest one was the cutest one and in the middle of the movie the King had a party and he fell in love with Anna. One of the King's wife ran away with a guy and the King found out and the King told the guard to cut his wife head off because he didn't obey him. The sad part was when the King youngest daughter died because she got very sick and she was very cute. In this story Anna teached the King's children a lot of English and Anna wanted to leave but the children didn't want her to leave.
