In a camp cabin several campers refuse to go to sleep. Wick, their counselor, tells them a tale that mashes several Grimm’s Fairy Tales together.
The story unfolds in their cabin as Wick tells the story of Abay, a young boy (or girl) whose one wish is to feel fear.
Abay is ostracized from the other kids in the village because he is different. But when another boy is taken by a Dwarf (from Snow White’s tale) Abay is the only one who can save him. Impressed by the Abays lack of fear, the dwarf agrees to set his friend free if Abay completes a mission.
The Dwarf sends Abay on a hero’s journey through mountains and forest to find the Wicked Queen who cast the spell on the dwarf’s friend (Snow White). Abay must cast a truth spell on the Queen to discover how to break the curse of the maiden who sleeps forever. Abay goes on this journey and along the way he meets a new friend, Falada the talking horse. Together they travel in and out of other famous tales such as Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Rumplestiltskin and many more to find the Wicked Queen.
