Once upon a time, a fallen princess, who dreamed of becoming a classical singer, was lost in a dark forest, where wolves and bears prowled. Her fear was so great that she ran as far as her legs could carry her. Suddenly, she came upon a beautiful house near a mysterious cemetery. She knocked at the door and a butcheress, struck by a curse and awaiting the love of a princess, opened the door. The princess begged her for food and refuge. In return, the butcheress demanded her lifelong friendship in order to free herself from her curse. In desperation, the princess nodded and said “yes”. Henceforth, they made a habit of cutting meat and humming a love song while riding a tandem at nightfall. One day a knight, garbage collector by profession, came upon this treacherous kingdom and began to sound his horn. Thus, seduction, betrayal, jealousy and intrigue intertwine in an atmosphere of barely contained madness. Proving that fairy tales do not always have a “happy end”.
