When Rapunzel became young, she wanted to go out of the tower but Mother Gothel denied going out.

When Flynn Rider awoke, he found himself tied to a chair with the long hair of Rapunzel. Tomorrow was her 18th birthday, she made a deal with him and asked him to take her to see lights, and then she would return his satchel.

She was surprised to see this. That night she went with Flynn to view the floating lights, which were actually lanterns. Then the couple gazed into each other's eyes and realised that they were falling in love.

Later, Flynn and Rapunzel were separated. Mother Gothel told Rapunzel a lie that Flynn had only wanted the crown but now she knew the reality of Mother Gothel. She told her that she knew that she was a lost princess. Suddenly, Flynn came there to rescue Rapunzel. But he was hurt by Mother Gothel and she stopped Rapunzel to heal Flynn. Anyhow Flynn stood and cut off Rapunzel’s hair. As a result of this, Mother Gothel changed into an aged woman and turned to dust. Rapunzel was now free, but Flynn was dying. One drop of tear fell from the eyes of Rapunzel on Flynn and healed him. Both of them came back to the castle after this. The King and Queen embraced their lost princess.
