Synopsis

Animation. Tired of the status quo, an unholy alliance of bad guys led by Frieda, Cinderella's evil stepmother, takes on the good guys. Cinderella ('Ella') starts out as a damsel in distress, but when her own fairy tale takes a radical left turn she is forced to form and eventually lead a resistance group without her Prince Charming. Set against a backdrop of fractured fairy tales spinning wildly out of control, Ella and her unknown true love Rick, the palace dishwasher, ultimately must choose their own destinies in a world of happy endings gone wrong. The race for control of the kingdom is on, and the power mad Frieda, fuelled by a total disdain for goodness, is set to change the age-old storyline to 'Happily N'ever After'!
