In this retelling of the story of Rapunzel, we meet a young fisherman and his pregnant wife.  She is craving some sugar cane and begs her husband to get her some.  When he finds a sugar cane patch, he helps himself without thinking about who it may belong to.  Well, he should have stopped to think about it.  The sugar cane patch belongs to a sorceress and she isn't too happy about being robbed.  On the baby's first birthday, Madame Fate claims the baby as her own and locks her away in a tower.
