Once upon a time, there was a woman named Emma Swan. All her life, Emma lived in what you might call “the real world”, where life is rough and there are no happy endings, just tragedy and misery and heartbreak.

Then one day, a young boy named Henry Mills showed up, claiming to be her long lost son. He said that Emma was the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, sent away as a baby to protect her from the Evil Queen before she cast a horrible curse that transported everyone from the land of fairy tales to another world—this one. He had been living in a town called Storybrooke with the Evil Queen, who went by the name Regina Mills. He claimed that everyone who lived there were fairytale characters whose memories were erased by the Evil Queen’s curse. Henry tracked her down so she could come with him and help him break the Evil Queen’s curse.
