Welcome to Storybrooke, a small town in Maine that you won't find on any map. This town is full of magic, populated by fairytale characters once cursed by the Evil Queen Regina to live in our world - deprived of their memories and happy endings. Until Emma Swan came to town and changed everything. With the help of her son, Henry, Emma embraced her true identity as the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming - the Savior destined to break the Curse. But even after returning everyone's memories, Emma's mission was far from over. With the Curse broken, Mr. Gold (aka Rumplestiltskin) was free to bring magic to Storybrooke.
