Maleficent is a beautiful and powerful fairy with a pure heart who falls in love with a human boy with ambitions to become king. However, she suffers a terrible betrayal at his hands, and he burns off her wings.
Heartbroken, she builds a darker kingdom in the fairy realm bordering the human kingdom. When her former lover, now king, hosts a christening for his infant daugher Aurora, Maleficent curses her to fall into a deep sleep upon her 16th birthday when shen pricks her finger on a spinning wheel.
However, Maleficent grows fond of the girl, looking after her from afar as she grows up, and she comes to realize that the child holds the key to peace in the kingdom - and perhaps, her own happiness as well.
