Ball gowns meet bluegrass in this fairytale romance that blends two wildly different worlds filled with music and dance: a bone-chilling ballroom where jealousy erupts and an enchanted forest where young passion blooms. At the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve, one royal family’s dream turns into a nightmare. Suspecting his queen cheated on him, a jealous king banishes her and their newborn from the court.
