A spellbinding re-imagining of the classic fairy tale. A young prince learns the story of a princess in a nearby palace. The princess, cursed by an evil fairy as a young child, pricked her finger on a spindle and fell into a deep slumber. The prince resolves to rescue the sleeping Beauty and sets off for her castle. Once he arrives, he awakens her and instantly falls in love, marrying her in secret. When the Prince becomes King just a few years later, his marriage to the Beauty is revealed, much to the ire of the Queen Mother – who happens to be an ogress. The Beauty, now a queen herself, must contend with her mother-in-law while protecting her children.
