In this retelling of the classic fairy tale, a lovely young woman, Beauty, always puts her family's needs before those of her own, especially after her father loses their fortune. Then, when her father garners the ire of a monstrous neighbor, she selflessly takes his punishment -- imprisonment in a castle. Hardly seeing her captor in the beginning, Beauty eventually spends more time with the beast and begins to feel the power of love.
