A film by Paulo A.M. Oliveira and Pedro Martins

Portugal / Horror / 15:00 min / 2019

A modern take on Grimms’ Fairy Tales.
Lost in the forest on a stormy night, Maria and Miguel take refuge in an old woodcutter’s home. The cottage seems to be the ideal scenario for all desires, hunger pangs, and spells to be released. But, apparently, the old woodcutter, with his strange habits, does not live alone.
