Once upon a time in the Eternal Kingdom, there lived a Queen who wanted everything and everyone to be perfect. So, when her subjects turn 18, they are sent for “Enhancement” – a programme to correct their flaws.
The Queen holds a beauty pageant every year where she crowns herself as the winner. One day, her Magic Mirror, who cannot lie without literally cracking up, reveals to her that a new beauty has come of age – her own step-daughter Snow White.
Poor Snow White is ordered to undergo a nip-tuck by the creepy Royal Surgeon. But she runs away to the Outer Limits, where she encounters junk, vermin and the rapping, breakdancing Seven Dwarfs – outcasts banished from the Kingdom for falling short of the Queen’s standards.
Will Snow White escape from the Queen’s manicured clutches? Will her Prince Charming recognise true love in her bad hair state? And will the Queen ever stop coming up with new titles for herself and finally retire?
