Feeling responsible for the terrible fate which has befallen her family, Beauty decides to sacrifice herself and take her father's place. At the Beast�s castle, it is not death that awaits Beauty, but a strange life in which fantastical moments mingle with gaiety and melancholy. Every night, at dinner, Beauty and the Beast sit down together. They learn about each other, taming one another like two strangers who are total opposites.
