Rapunzel lives with her loving, yet very overprotective, Nan after her mother left across the big sea. Year after year, Nan builds their tower higher and higher to protect them from the disgraceful, scary world. Every year, Rapunzel’s hair grows longer, and so does her curiosity about the world outside. It isn’t until Rafi, a local boy, comes by and befriends Rapunzel that she finally gets the courage to be free.
