Inspired by the classic Grimm Brothers Fairy Tales (the second best-selling book in the world, after the Bible), this feature CGI comedy explores what would happen if the balance of good and evil were set out of whack in Fairy Tale Land.

Tired of the status quo, an unholy alliance of bad guys led by Frieda, Cinderella's evil stepmother, takes on the good guys. Cinderella (aka Ella) starts out as a damsel in distress (your typical Prince dreamer), but when her own fairy tale takes a radical left turn she is forced to form and eventually lead a resistance group without her Prince Charming.

Set against a backdrop of fractured fairy tales spinning wildly out of control, Ella and her unknown true love Rick, the palace dishwasher, ultimately must choose their own destinies in a world of happy endings gone wrong.

The race for control of the kingdom is on, and the power mad Frieda, fuelled by a total disdain for goodness, is set to change the age-old storyline to "Happily N'Ever After"!
