“Frozen” Film Synopsis:
It all started when Anna asked her sister Elsa to play with her. Elsa, born with magic, accidentally hit Anna in the forehead. She was unconscious until their parents brought Anna to the mountain trolls. The troll ruler removed Anna’s memory of Elsa’s magic and warned Elsa about it. He said that her power manifests when she’s afraid. Since then, the king and queen locked the palace, isolating the girls from other people as well as each other’s company. Unfortunately, Anna and Elsa’s parents died at sea, leaving Elsa to become the queen when she comes of age.
During Elsa’s coronation as queen, the palace reopened. Anna was so happy because she was able to see other people and interact with them as well. Plus, she can finally hang out with her beloved sister who she has missed ever since she shunned her. Then, Anna met Hans. Hans asked Anna to marry him, even if they had just met. Anna, together with Hans, asked for Elsa’s blessing. However, she refused. Anna got mad at her sister, which in turn, angered Elsa too, revealing her powers. Elsa ran away.
Anna, not giving up on her sister, teamed with Kristoff. In their journey, they met Olaf, a snowman who would like to experience summer. All together they looked for Elsa to save her and their kingdom from falling into evil hands and eternal winter.
