WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
There once was a Queen and her servant, Rose. Rose had a daughter, Eve, and the Queen had everything except the one thing she most desperately wanted, a child. She would do anything for a child, even make a promise to a witch. But when the Queen breaks her promise her daughter Dawn is cursed to die on her 15th birthday by pricking her hand on the spindle of a spinning wheel. 14 years later the two girls, Dawn and Eve are best friends, and would do anything for each other, even if it means sacrificing their world as they fall asleep for a long long time. Follow Dawn and Eve through their journey of friendship, mishaps and what it means to be 'beautiful' when the whole world changes in what you thought was the blink of an eye. Will their friendship survive against the dark forces that now roam the kingdom, not to mention the young prince who seems destined to split them apart?
