Meat and Salt is a fairy tale based on King Lear.

When the scrupulously honest Little Daughter tells the tyrannical Big Daddy she loves him as meat loves salt, he banishes her from his Kingdom. She falls onto the Mountains of the Moon Hounds and after many adventures, she meets The Young King who falls in love with her honesty. They agree to marry and her father is invited to the feast only to find a surprise waiting for him.
