Synopsis

Princess Snow White is trying to win the favour of the queen. The queen is obsessed by her own beauty; she constantly looks into the magic mirror to see if she is all the time the most beautiful. When she discovers one day that Snow White is more beautiful than her she orders the master of the hunt to kill Snow White in the forest and bring her heart to her. The huntmaster, on seeing Snow White, takes pity and lets her go. The girl flees through the forest into a cave that is equipped with diminutive pieces of furniture for seven people. The dwarfs come in and invite Snow White to take refuge there with them. The magic mirror reveals Snow White's hiding place to the queen. In disguise the queen goes to Snow White's cave with a poisoned belt, but the dwarfs save her. When the queen learns her evil plan has failed she goes to the cave again, this time with a poisoned comb. Once again, Snow White is saved by the dwarfs. Finally the queen offers Snow White a poisoned apple. Here the dwarfs are unable to help her and it is Prince Jasmin who rescues her and then takes her back to his kingdom as his bride.
