Black Mother, the old witch, seeks to control the world thorough sadness, by draining the tears of all who suffer loss.  Her latest target is the Princess, whose demise should prompt enough tears to grant her absolute power. During a picnic in the woods, Black Mother entraps the Princess and encases her in a glass coffin. But her powerful nemesis, old White Father, intercedes with an obstacle.  He creates an impossibly tall and steep ice mountain with a chapel on its peak, where the Princess will sleep for seven years and seven days before Black Mother can have her.
