In this adaptation of the classic Grimm fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, the story is told from Gretel’s perspective. This version of the story is decidedly darker, transforming a creepy tale into something more horrific. Hansel and Gretel are kicked out of their home by their deranged mother, and they must find food and shelter on their own. While searching for food and a place to work, the siblings stumble upon a lonely cottage deep in the forest, where the scent of fresh cake is wafting out of the open windows. The elderly lady who lives there invites them to stay with her, but not all is at it seems.
