A drop of sunlight falls to the ground and grows into a magical flower, with the power to heal the sick and injured. An old woman named Gothel finds it and uses it to keep herself young by singing an incantation. Centuries later, a kingdom has developed, ruled by a king and queen. The Queen becomes ill during pregnancy, and the couple's loving subjects search for the legendary flower. The queen is eventually fed the flower, is healed, and gives birth to a daughter, whom they name Rapunzel. Rapunzel's golden hair, it is found, has absorbed the magical abilities of the flower. Gothel kidnaps Rapunzel and hides her in a tower, saving the powers of the magic flower for herself, and raising her as her own child. Every year, on Rapunzel's birthday, her kingdom releases thousands of sky lanterns, in the hope that the lost princess will return. Years later, Rapunzel asks Gothel to let her see the source of the annual floating lights, but Gothel refuses. Meanwhile, the charismatic Flynn Rider and accomplices steal the tiara of the lost princess. During the ensuing chase, Maximus the horse is separated from his rider, the Captain of the Guards, and continues the search for Flynn on his own. Flynn outwits his accomplices, takes the tiara, and stumbles upon Rapunzel's tower, only to be knocked unconscious by Rapunzel and hidden in a closet. When Gothel returns, Rapunzel requests, as a birthday present, a special paint found only on a faraway beach. Gothel leaves on the long journey to bring back the gift. Rapunzel takes Flynn out of her closet and tells him that she will give him the tiara if he takes her to see the lights. Flynn takes her to the Snuggly Duckling Inn, which is full of Gaul thugs, in hopes of scaring her into giving up her quest, but the thugs are charmed by Rapunzel, who encourages them to follow their dreams. Mother Gothel sees Maximus riderless and worries someone will find Rapunzel. She returns to the tower to find Rapunzel gone. Meanwhile, the guards invade the tavern, but Rapunzel and Flynn Rider have escaped. The pursuit ends at a dam, which Maximus causes to collapse; Flynn and Rapunzel are trapped in a flooding cave. Believing he's about to die, Flynn admits his true name: Eugene Fitzherbert. Rapunzel admits she has magic hair that glows when she sings. Using her hairlight, they find a way out. Later, when Flynn goes to gather firewood, Gothel meets Rapunzel, insisting that Flynn does not care for her and merely wants the tiara. Gothel gives Rapunzel the tiara, suggesting that she test Flynn by giving it to him....
