In the kingdom of Arendelle, a king and queen give birth to two girls. The oldest daughter, Elsa, is born with the power to create and control ice and snow. The youngest daughter, Anna, possesses no magic powers. After seriously injuring Anna on accident one night, Elsa's parents decide to keep her confined in the castle until she can learn to control her powers. This leaves Elsa in her room her entire childhood, and Anna without a sister, wondering why she won't come out and play. When Elsa comes of age, the kingdom prepares for her to be crowned Queen by throwing a huge coronation celebration. Anna, thrilled to finally be let out of the castle, meets a charming visiting prince, Prince Hans, and after spending very little time with him, agrees to be his wife. Elsa denies Anna her blessing upon hearing the news, and as her emotions bubble up, so do her powers. Elsa flees the kingdom, leaving Arendelle buried in ice and snow and the throne without a ruler. Anna decides to set off into the wilderness to find her sister and bring her home, employing the help of a working-class man named Kristoff, while Elsa finally learns to embrace her powers for the first time, creating a massive ice castle far from the kingdom, where she may live happily in isolation. When Anna finally catches up with Elsa, she must make a decision: attempt to make things right and stick with her family, or stay away from the restrictions and judgments of society.
