Snow White and her family Queen Grace and King Cole were having a peaceful time waving at people. Queen Grace shows young Snow White how to act like a kind ruler. In her room, Queen Grace quotes "Remember, the mirror only tells half the story" as " true beauty is comes from helping others". Queen Grace coughs and the king realises that Queen Grace is ill.Day by day it grew worse until one sad day, Queen Grace dies.
Since she died,Snow White grew without having a mother figure.Snow White became an ignorant teenager who only likes to hang out with her friends than help her subjects instead. Snow White refuses to visit the orphanage and forcing the king to allow her to go to a joust party. Her father tells her that she must come back before morning.
In the party. She meets this man and she falls in love with him in the toilet. Although, he doesn't seem to fall back in love because Snow White does not help out. When Snow White returns, her father seems to be upset because she did not wear the robe and was in the stayed up past her curfew. Snow White weeps about him being bad and runs to her room. Her father notices her bad side and decides to find a wife like Queen Grace to show Snow White how to become a woman. His assistant goes to Fairy Godmother for help where she begins an arranged marriage service thing.
Meanwhile, Lady Vain goes to her Magic Mirror and becomes into Queen Grace by the figures thing. She goes to the marriage counselling service and the king accepts her not knowing that Lady Vein is truly a horrible scheming witch who wants to rule the kingdom and eat lots of bologna. Snow White is a thorn to Lady Vein's side and she wants Snow White to be gone away from the kingdom. When Lady Vain has Rumpelstiltskin (who seems to have got evil again due to the scales) give Snow White a fake make-over, they give her an apple that makes her say the things she had ever thought to the whole town including the King person. Snow White wakes up not remembering what had happened or what she had said and decides to visit her friends and have something to eat.
The major gossip is around town forcing Snow White to leave and runs to the forest bit. She enters a house and then falls asleep on seven small beds. When she wakes up, she finds the Seven Dwarfs completely enraged at her coming inside them without permission. One notices her to be the main queen ladys daughter and they make a plan up to turn Snow White like her mother. Snow White agrees to do whatever the Seven Dwarfs tell her to do without questioning them or whinging. They go to help rebuilt the Three Little Pigs' homes after getting blown by the Big Bad Wolf.
During baby-sitting, Snow White sings to the children the same lullaby her mother used to sing to her when she was not old and realizes that helping others makes them feel good. And that, she starts her own Snow White's Helping Business thing. The Seven Dwarfs are nowhere to be found after that. Good. Then at the kingdom, everyone is excited to meet Lady Vain, whats wedding with the king will begin at midnight. She hires two bodyguards because she "used to get around with lots of people". Sir Peter, who is one of the body-guards finds out about Lady Vein's evil scheming of getting rid of Snow White forever and runs to some woods to find her.
He finds her chopping Pinocchio's nose and sorting out Humpty Dumpty. At first, Snow White does not want to go, but then she does. They make it just in time thanks to the help of Mambo and Munk and enters the wedding bit. As sneaky as a small squirrel, Snow White goes in front of the alter stand bit and tells her father that if he wants to marry Lady Vain it is his choice and not hers. Her father responses "All I want is my daughter back" as the crowd awes at his good speech. Lady Vain, who is disgusted and doesn't want Snow White back, says that Snow White is still the horrible teenager and has not changed at all.
The peasants what Snow White helped appear to save Snow White. Lady Vain starts to get the magic mirror into zapping people but the zap gets zapped back to the magic mirror, braking the spell bit of Lady Vein's beauty and making her nose go all bad. Before the guards could take Lady Vain away because of her bad nose, Snow White comes to her and yells into her face "You don't need to be a queen to be beautiful." and the Seven Dwarfs come to take her away instead. The film ends with Snow White, Peter, and her father dancing.
