"Fanga" is the Icelandic word for prisoner -- which echoes through this modern take on the classic fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast." Belle is stuck in obligation to her dead mother, a willing prisoner to the need to care of her family. But when Belle's papa falls ill, she chooses to become prisoner to the Beast in exchange for a healing spell. Caught between two toxic relationships, Fanga is the story of Belle fighting through the wrong kind of love in order to feel her way towards something new and redemptive.
