A modern-day story with the classical theme of good conquering evil. You'll find the age-old ingredients of a magic mirror, poisonous apple, dwarfs, and romance here. However, this adaptation includes a vain mother who's so clouded by beauty myths that she keeps her own daughter a secret, while plagiarizing the workings of her mind. Everything falls apart when the good mirror finally speaks the truth.
How sad for Snow's mom Ivy, that she hid her daughter away as soon as she was born and saw that she had vitiligo (most people with Vitiligo don't get it until they are in their adult years). Ivy hid her away so that noone saw her, forcing her to write children's stories. What an uncaring mother!
When Snow was able, she ran away into the forest to escape Ivy. She lived with some dwarfs for a bit, and was tricked by a witch with an apple. (Sound a bit like the traditional fairy tale?) The prince loved Snow White even with her white patches, thinking she was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her heart captured his love.
