Interesting backstory to the Cinderella tale. We find out where the fairy godmother came from and how Cinderella came to be.
Mirabelle is born to a family of evil witches. She is given the gift of free will which will have far reaching consequences for her family. Her mother begins training her when she is young. She shows great promise and is talented beyond her years.
That pesky gift of free will and independent thinking gets in the way of her mother’s domineering ways. The question comes down to whether Mirabelle will follow the path her mother set for her or whether she will choose her own destiny.
