A modest single-bedroom home of stone.

BRAUN (V.O.)

9 months later the man’s wife,

miraculously delivered their first

child.

4.

Beads of sweat dot the pale skin of the Desperate Man’s Wife

as she struggles through child birth. Her eyes clenched

tight, she breaths heavily, crying out.

FADE TO BLACK.

BRAUN (V.O.)

As the infant took her first

breath, the witch arrived to

collect her due. She reclaimed the

eternal life that the man and his

wife had stolen from her garden and

left with their child, who she

named, Rapunzel.

CUT TO:

EXT. STONE TOWER PRISON - 12 YEARS LATER

The sun glows bright. Birds of the forest chirp and flutter

in the trees that dot the rolling foothills.

A lone tower of stone stands amidst the wilderness.

No stairs, no door, a single window at the top of a 200 foot

prison.

In the window, 12-YEAR-OLD RAPUNZEL, with hair the color of a

wheat field.

Her eyes are crystal blue. Simple brown freckles spot her

face.

She hums a haunting melody.

BRAUN (V.O.)

The girl grew into a young woman

whose beauty was beyond any the

witch had known. Understanding the

corrupt heart of man and their

deceitful way, the witch locked

Rapunzel in a high tower and began

to discipline the girl’s mind

against the creatures of humanity.

A dove lands on Rapunzel’s window seal. She approaches it,

nearly touching it, before the bird flies away.

5.

BRAUN (V.O.)

But, with every day that passed

Rapunzel grew more intrigued by the

outside world.

CUT TO:

INT. STONE TOWER PRISON - 5 YEARS LATER

17-YEAR-OLD RAPUNZEL reaches for a pile of blankets under her

bed. Wedged between them is a length of golden rope, woven

from her hair.

BRAUN (V.O.)

The witch denied the girl’s wish to

walk outside of her prison’s walls

and so Rapunzel began weaving a

rope of her own hair’s clippings in

secret, with hope that she might

escape.
