So, she curses the princess to touch the spindle of a spinning wheel and die on her 16th birthday. However, the good fairies manage to change the curse so that the princess will only fall into a deep sleep from which only a true love’s kiss can wake her.
It is Sleeping Beauty’s birthday and time for the celebration. But also Maleficent is also there to use her magic and put the princess under her spell…

We live in the future. In North America, there is a Capitol built up from the ruins. It holds an annual cruel reality television event called “The Hunger Games” in which 26 participants, the “tributes”, are selected by lottery to play and fight for their lives. Even during this dangerous game, some of the participants are lucky to experience the flame of love.
