Beauty and the Beast follows the adventurous Belle, a young woman with a love for books and a longing for something more than her provincial life. But her life takes an unexpected turn when she becomes a prisoner in a bewitched castle, held captive by a Beast under a spell. As Belle befriends the enchanted castle’s staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s exterior, she discovers the kindness and compassion within. Beauty and the Beast is a tale of love, inner beauty, and the transformational power of compassion.
