This classic tale raises questions about the value of trust, who we should trust, and why. Jack's mother tells him to sell their family cow. But instead of selling the cow, he trades it to a stranger for five magic beans. When a beanstalk grows, Jack climbs it in hopes of making the best out of a bad situation for his family. Little does Jack know….. A giant lies above!

The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed into his former self. But time is running out.
