A wicked enchantress has spirited a lovely young girl to a lonely tower in the middle of a deep wood. Her name is Rapunzel, and the only way to get into the tower is to climb her magnificent long hair. Now it happens that a handsome young prince hears her singing, while he's out riding. Before they can meet, however, they'll have to outwit the mean-hearted enchantress ... which is easier said than done. Thorns, hunger, and years in a lonely desert are ahead of the young couple, but the end of the story finds them together and happy.
