Imagine Snow White mixed with Romeo and Juliet in Ancient Britain, but with a happy ending! The beautiful princess Imogen loves the peasant Posthumus, but her father, King Cymbeline, is warped by her wicked step-mother. Posthumus is exiled. While abroad, Posthumus bets on the loyalty of his love whom a rival, the creepy Iachimo, wishes to test. Imogen remains true, but Iachimo’s lies prompt Posthumus to enlist his servant, Pisanio, to coax Imogen to run away with him to the forest and kill her. Imogen is eager to flee Britain and quickly plots her escape disguised as a boy. Abandoning Pisanio after he is unable to kill her in the woods, Imogen finds refuge with other woodsmen who had fled the King’s unjustified tyranny. Ultimately, evil is punished and love is restored through the power of forgiveness.
