Ella welcomes her new stepmother and step sisters, Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella’s father suddenly dies, the jealous new family treat her like a servant and rename her Cinderella. But even living in this hopeless situation, Ella continues to honor her mom’s dying words “have courage and be kind.” Meeting a handsome stranger (Richard Madden) in the woods is the one thing that keeps her going. When the Palace invites every maiden to the ball, Cinderella with the help of a kind beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) changes her life forever.
