Cinderella (named Zezolla) and her family live mid 20th century, where fashion is practically everything. As her father is won over by a selfish woman named Claudette, Cinderella must keep her new step-mother from murdering the only family she has left. Add in an anti-social mermaid literally living in a cave, a bored prince with an ear for rock n' roll, and the glamour of the 1950's and one'll find that this story can't grow old. Written by

The scene where the father asks his three daughters for proof of their love so he can buy whatever they desire, is a reference to the Cinderella-type folktale "Cap-o'-Rushes", wherein the story the father asks his daughters how much they loved him. The father as a businessman and the gifts they request upon his return trip home, jewelry and a rose, are allusions to the fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast". See more
