The fairy tale world is in chaos; characters from well-known tales have become mixed up in other stories. Brothers Jacob and Wilhelm are asked to help establish order. Lazy dwarves, a very vain rooster and his talking mirror are part of the cast. Snow White has given notice, Little Red Riding Hood has forgotten to bring Grandmother her cake and the King and Queen seem to have misplaced their daughter.
Hollweg has staged the story with plenty of special effects: Audiences will be able to witness how a normal-sized wolf devours a normal-sized container ship. The wolf has since found permanent employment at Felixstowe Docks.
