Just a reminder, my version of the story is based on a Norwegian folktale called East of the Moon and West of the Sun. Here's a link to the original story if anyone is interested in reading it. www.ifyoulovetoread.com/book/c…
The bottom list shows my version of the story. The list may be vary from the color script but it should follow it accurately.
1) Location takes place in New York City. and introduction starts with Will Ryan Compass, the future president of a big corporation. He objects to being the next president and just wants to be free. Vice President, Gwen, denies his decision and says it is on his father's will (who recently died) that he be the next president ASAP.

But since the mom is a spiritual person, she can tells her whether he's a good or bad if just by looking at their face. So she tells her to takes photo through her phone and send it to her when he's asleep.
12) As night came, she carefully takes a flash photo of him and is stun by his beauty. She then snap out of her daze and send the photo to her mom.
