Neglected and abused by her cruel stepmother and stepsisters, Cinderella's life is one of drudgery and hardship. Then, on the evening of an extravagant ball at the palace, amidst swirling,magical mists, her Fairy Godmother appears and casts a spell that will change her life forever. Arriving at the ball in a beautiful dress, Cinderella draws everyone's eyes to her, including those of the handsome Prince. He sweeps her off her feet and they dance the night away, until the clock chimes midnight and the party comes to an abrupt end. Thrust back into her miserable existence, Cinderella can only dream of what might have been, until an unexpected royal visitor comes to her home, searching the land for the mysterious owner of a jewelled slipper...
