Plot: A beautiful daughter was born to the royal family. However, the evil witch (the king’s sister!) curses the infant with weightlessness. Light body, light head… is it good or bad? Nobody and nothing is able to remove these evil magic. As it happens in fairy tales, a Prince from a neighboring kingdom falls in love with the Princess. But… the Princess seems to be indifferent to her admirer because her light attitude does not take anything seriously.
The Light Princess is a wonderful tale that will capture children with its story and will make adults think about stereotypes in society.
