In a faraway kingdom, a noble, rich man lives a happy life with his faithful wife and his beautiful daughter. Unfortunately, his wife soon falls gravely ill and dies a short time after, leaving his daughter motherless. The man marries again, choosing for a wife a woman with two daughters, who, like their mother, have wicked and cruel hearts. When the man leaves on a business trip, the stepmother and stepsisters take away his daughter's fine clothes and bedroom and treat her as a servant in her own house. She's forced to sleep on a straw mat by the fireplace surrounded by ashes and cinders; for this they call her "Cinderella". Not far away at the palace, the prince had come of age and faces difficulty finding a suitable wife. The king plans a great ball to take place at the palace, inviting all the single young ladies from the kingdom where his son will be able to choose a wife. With the help of her fairy godmother, Cinderella attends the ball looking beautiful and there she dances ...
