It tells the story of the Indian King, Dushyanta, and his marriage to the maiden Sakuntala. Here's a brief rundown. According to the myth , Sakuntala is abandoned by her parents at birth and grows up in a small hermitage sort of like a monastery belonging to the sage Kanva. One day, while Kanva is away from the hermitage, King Dushyanta stumbles upon Sakuntala while hunting. Dushyanta falls immediately in love. He approaches Sakuntala, courts her, and then marries her.

Plots similar to the play appear in earlier texts. There is a story mentioned in Mahabharata. A story of similar plot appear in the buddhist Jataka tales as well. In Mahabharata the story appears as a precursor to the Pandava and Kaurava's lineages. In the story King Dushyanta and Shakuntala meet in the forest and get estranged and ultimately reunited.
