Pandolfe, Cendrillon's father, tries to comfort his daughter as she bemoans the life, she will never have at the hands of her less than kind stepmother and stepsisters. He decides that they will flee together. However, before he can return, she runs to the woods to die, too grief stricken to continue. There, her fairy Godmother brings Cendrillon and her Prince together and allows them to share their love in an enchanted sleep.
