Escaping the poisoned apple, Snow frees herself from possession to find the truth of love in an unexpected place. - A club girl from L.A., awakening from a long sleep to the memories of her past, finally finds release from its curse. - And Beauty learns that Beasts can understand more than men. - Within these s i n g u l a r , timeless landscapes, the brutal and the magical collide, and the heroine triumphs because of the strength she finds in a pen, a paintbrush, a lover, a friend, a mother, and finally, in herself."
