American Princess Plot: What’s It About?
Amanda lives a luxurious life on the Upper East Side and is about to marry the man of her dreams. Her wedding is a meticulously planned affair with every single detail crafted out according to the one she had always wanted. It is nothing short of a fairy tale affair and the wedding is the talk of the town.
However, all of that happiness goes down the drain when Amanda discovers a startling truth about her fiancée, just hours before the wedding. He has been cheating on her and she finds that out in the worst possible way, by catching him in the act! Disgusted and outraged at his betrayal, Amanda doesn’t know what to do anymore. She is in her wedding dress and the guests have arrived, but she can’t marry this man. So, she takes the only route available to her — she runs away. In the haste and the frenzy, she forgets to take her phone and doesn’t carry any cash with her.
At the end of the day, she finds herself at a Renaissance Faire. With the atmosphere of celebration and merriment around her, Amanda takes a break to realise what she has done and what will become of her life after she’s back home. That reminds her, how would she go back now? Also, she discovers that her running away has already trumped her dreamy wedding and is the only thing that everyone is talking about now. If there was any reason for Amanda to go back home, it is drowned in the embarrassment waiting for her back home.
So, Amanda decides to not go back. For a while, at least. Not until she figures a way out of this crisis. While she wonders about a way to evaluate her life, an opportunity presents itself. It feels like redemption for Amanda. Nothing else matters for her now, except winning the title of the Faire’s newest ‘wench in waiting’. If she can get through this, she can get through anything.
