The King and Queen of Inajiffy are shocked when evil witch Wasere places a curse on their daughter Katrina: that on her eighteenth birthday the Princess will prick her finger on a spindle and die.
The fairies present are able to have this spell commuted: she will sleep for a hundred years. The curse is duly fulfilled despite all their efforts. The Princess, King, Queen and the whole court fall asleep and the castle is surrounded by a vast hedge. But help is on the way in the shape of Prince Stephan aided by Prince Arfer, and a happy ending is assured.
