Protected by a dusty cover, a rose-scented book tells the story of a rich merchant who loses all his fortune and sets off on a mad journey, promising to restore dignity to his family. However, when he comes across a mysterious castle shrouded in a curse that exposes the bestial side of its occupants, a spiral of unfortunate events causes Bela - his daughter - to be forced to stay in this enchanted building.
Now, only in her beautiful hope will she find the strength to travel through the dark and mutant corridors of that castle, which boasts the presence of magical entities, dangerous melodies and a monstrous host.
Will Bela be able to reveal that there is beauty in a rose beyond its thorns? That there are more stories in a book than the cover reveals? That behind every monstrous facet there may be a sleeping good? It is something that only the purest love can answer.
