Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Brave

Princess Merida is a headstrong girl and a skilled archer who finds out that it is time for her to be betrothed to one of her father's allied clans. Merida declares that the competition for her hand in marriage will be an archery tournament, which she enters and wins. When this ploy doesn't change Merida's fate, she makes a deal with a witch for a spell to change her mother. When Merida uses the spell, it changes her mother into a bear instead of changing her mind about Merida's marriage. Merida learns that to break the spell, she must "mend the bond torn by pride," and she has to figure out what this means before the spell permanently turns her mother into a bear.
