In a large attic of a house on the outskirts of London, Hazel (played by Cerys Lambert) along with six children fall asleep reading fairy tales. Suddenly they are in Hazel’s wonderful and frightening dream, where she is Rapunzel. She is locked in a tower in the magical woods and is desperate to be … [Read more...]
