Fairy tale fantasy. The story behind the fairy queen of the moors Maleficent, who curses the neighbouring kingdom's baby Princess Aurora (or 'Sleeping Beauty'), dooming her to prick her finger on a spinning wheel on her sixteenth birthday and fall into an unending sleep. The film explains how Maleficent was kind and loving in her youth, but was betrayed by Stefan (Aurora's father) in his bid to become king, and became embittered. As Maleficent watches Aurora grow up, sheltered from all spinning wheels in a cottage in the forest, she begins to be affected by the girl's innocence.
