Synopsis: Prince Adam was cursed to a beast form by an enchantress who saw no love in his arrogant heart for others. The one way he could break the spell was to learn to love another and earn her love in return before the last petal from his enchanted rose fell, which would bloom until his twenty-first birthday. But who could ever love a beast? Ten years later, Maurice, an inventor from a nearby village, becomes lost in the woods and seeks shelter in the Beast’s castle.
The Beast imprisons him for trespassing. His daughter Belle, a bookworm who dreams of life outside her provincial village, finds him trapped in the castle and offers herself in his place. The Beast accepts with a promise she’ll remain in the castle forever. In the beginning Belle views him just as a monster, he views her as difficult and stubborn. But soon a a bitter-sweet tale begins.
