19th-century "folklore collectors," Wilhem and Jacob Grimm are con artists who perform bogus exorcisms of "evil enchantments" while traveling from village to village in French-occupied Germany. The two soon find themselves ensnared in a genuinely supernatural crisis involving the curse of the Mirror Queen and other such fantastical marvels as the Big Bad Wolf, the Gingerbread Man, and other truly enchanted flora and fauna. A manic villain and a serious fantasy involving the beautiful Angelika, proves to be the Grimm Brothers' most reliable ally.
