Life is not a fairy tale.
Synopsis: In a dark and stylized take on the Sleepy Beauty myth, viewers are transported along the difficult road of a young mother (The Queen) from the birth of her daughter (The Princess) to her decent into despair and a mother’s worst nightmare. A small glimmer of hope does come out of the darkness, but there will be no perfect happily ever after.
