Two brothers, ages 8 and 12, live with their parents in a small house just at the edge of their city. Next to them is a forest, out of place, but regarded with normalcy. When there is tension in their house, the boys often hide in their room, spinning wild stories together. One evening after a family confrontation, the boys escape to the forest and begin telling stories to each other there. As they go back and forth, the stories they tell (based on various Grimm’s Fairy Tales) begin to come to life. As the stories progress, they take darker and darker turns, away from the brothers’ control.
