Snow White

SYNOPSIS


In a far-away land, a good king and queen dream of having a child. After a long wait, they are blessed with a baby girl, whom they name Snow White. Shortly after Snow White’s birth, the good queen dies. The king remarries, but this time to a proud and vain queen who values her beauty above all else.

Snow White grows older and lovelier and, on her sixteenth birthday, meets a handsome prince. The vain queen begins to fear that Snow White’s beauty will surpass her own. She orders her huntsman to take Snow White into the forest and kill her. But the huntsman spares her life, and Snow White finds refuge in the comfort of the forest animals, who lead her to the cozy cottage of seven friendly drawfs.

The vain queen learns from her magic mirror that Snow White is still alive and forms a new plan to kill the young girl. Disguised as a peddler, the bain queen visits the drawfs’ cottage and tempts Snow White with a poisoned apple. Snow White cannot resist and falls to the ground after one bite.

The drawfs return home from their mines to find Snow White’s body and place her in a glass coffin. Then one day, the handsome prince Snow White met on her 16th birthday finds the drawfs’ cottage while traveling through the forest. With true love’s kiss, he awakens Snow White from the poisoned apple’s spell. Snow White and the prince return to the kingdom together and live happily ever after.
