The Prince and the Pauper
Tom, a pauper, and Edward, the crown prince of England, come face to face. The similarities in their looks lead them to start a fanciful adventure of trading places. Tom experiences the magnificent lifestyle of royalty, while Edward discovers the daily struggles of the poor. But the temporary switch continues and each boy finds himself trapped in a life that does not belong to them.
