Synopsis

Princess Rapunzel is plain fed up. Tired of being locked in a tower, forced to lend out her hair as a climbing rope to clueless princes, she embarks on a new lifestyle by giving herself a late night haircut and setting out to cause some trouble. Rapunzel's mother, the chain smoking Witch, can't understand her daughter's mischievous lifestyle and enlists her best friend, the stylish Rumpelstiltzkin to help change Rapunzel's ways.  This updated version of the classic tale introduces new themes to a familiar story line, and poses a serious question to audiences: do princesses always have to follow the rules?
