This magical fairytale takes place in the forest during Christmas time, where a poor woodcutter lives with his wife and two children. They decide to send their children away because they cannot afford to keep them. Hansel and Gretel decide to run away instead and get lost in the forest and stumble across a house made of sweets. Inside lives an evil old lady who makes them do all the housework. Eventually they manage to escape and find their way home. There is a happy ending and a Christmas party for Hansel and Gretel. Hansel and Gretel is one of the world's most popular children's stories and this is a classic fairytale with a modern twist.
